It's the middle of the week already!



For your settling in activity (8:40 - 9:10) please complete the next two arithmetic sheets and then peer mark - look at areas you still need to improve upon. Remember arithmetic skills are key to so many areas of maths and also revise many maths skills, keeping them to the forefront of your mind.

RE: Hinduism

Today we are going to continue learning about special places of worship, in particular Hindu Mandirs/temples.


For ideas regarding Mehndi patterns, look at the booklets on the class RE display, or the A3 sheets. If you work hard and complete the places of worship tasks, you may have time to make a simple clay puja lamp, or decorate a flat clay hand with intricate Mehndi patterns:


Mandala Mehndi Designs

Mandala is a geometric configuration of symbols used in various spiritual traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Shintoism. Various configurations of Mandala are drawn on the centre of palm in this mehndi pattern.


If you make them and then let them air-dry we can paint them next week.

Why not play some relaxation/meditation Hindu music in the background whilst you are being creative.

But first:

  • you may find it advantageous to watch and listen to the two clips included in the ppt
  • then complete the activity: comparing and contrasting mandirs
  • complete the Mandir checklist - I hope you were observant when watching the two clips again!

Lesson for pupils:


Now it's time to get creative!


Recently you created a template, cardboard hand, to practise simple decorative patterns.

How geometrical and intricate can you make your patterns today?


Can you include other symbols:

  • ohm pattern, or
  • Vishnu's talik (upward line on his forehead),
  • the chakra wheel on his hand,
  • the shankha (conch) or
  • his Trisula (trident)
  • is anyone artistic enough to include a detailed lotus flower? (better than my one on the class window? crying)

Use pencil ends, clay craft tools, forks, knives to draw the intricate patterns needed.
