  • RE Suggestions
  • Chinese New Year is a good starting point,
    especially for younger children, with lots of
    scope for learning about Chinese culture.
  • Chinese New Year tell act out the story of the
    12 animals (Chinese New Year) How did the gods
    solve the dispute between the animals? How can we
    solve arguments disputes?
  • Learn how Chinese families celebrate New Year in
    their home e.g. cleaning the house, preparing
    special food, lucky money envelopes, dragon
    lion parades. Link to art cross-curricular
    ideas below.
  • Buddhism (For use in follow up lessons)
  • Use a picture / statue of the Buddha to introduce
    his life story. Tell discuss the story of
    Buddha's enlightenment. What would be a modern
    equivalent of the 4 sights?
  • Make a collage of newspaper articles/ pictures
    showing suffering, (or an annotated collage of
    happiness Unhappiness.) Why is there suffering
    in the world? How did Buddha answer this?
  • Invite a practising Buddhist to talk about how
    they live their life. Look at the 8-fold path,
    how could you apply it today? Role play modern
    dilemmas that need rules for living.
  • Use 3 baskets to introduce the Buddhist holy
    books. (Tipitaka or 3 baskets represent the 3
    main types of holy books the palm leaves they
    were originally written on.) Read discuss the
    story of Kisagotami the mustard seeds what
    does it teach about how Buddhists should treat
    other people? (LCP RE Resource file Y 5 6) or
    www. XXX
  • Further ideas
  • Meditation is an important aspect of Buddhism
    paint or colour in Mandalas use them to
    introduce the idea of meditation (trace the
    patterns, lose yourself in the mandala What
    thoughts did you have? How did it feel? Nb this
    should be an exercise in sitting quietly
    thinking, not the same as Buddhist meditation)
  • Or look at the idea of puja Buddhist shrines
    usually have candles to show that the Buddhist
    teachings light up the world flowers to remind
    them that nothing lasts for ever ask the class
    to sit quietly think about these ideas, then
    write down share their responses.
  • Write a haiku poem to celebrate an aspect of
    nature.
