Just put in a key word for example: ‘division. You can choose to watch a short video and then play the games or take a quiz.
Our school values
As we reach the last but one day of term, think about our school values and the strength that they have given us while we have all been in lockdown.
Can you think of each in turn and how they have helped you while you have been at home or in one of our groups at school?
Faith, love, perseverance, courage, honesty, respect, forgiveness, compassion.
All of these values have helped to sustain us.
Can you write a prayer that celebrates our school values?
Computing: By now you should be Scratch wizards! This week I would like you to choose your own tutorial to work through, thinking about what you would like to learn or perhaps go over something you have struggled with. We have covered all of the basics this term so challenge yourself to make something amazing. Good luck. The tutorials can be found
Holi A Celebration
What is Holi and what does it mean for Hindu people? How do Hindu people celebrate Holi and why?
Children often say that Holi is the most exciting Hindu festival because you get to throw paint at people. It’s a celebration for Spring and celebrates new life. There is an important religious message too. It’s about the victory of goodness over evil.
Hindus remember the story of Prince Prahlad. His father, the king, wanted everyone in his kingdom to worship him (a mere human, and a big headed one!) Prahlad refused and worshiped the God Vishnu instead. The King’s sister Holika decided to destroy Prahlad for this. She tricked him into sitting with her on a bonfire. She had a magical fireproof sari so she thought she was safe. But when the flames leaped up, her sari flew from her to protected Prahlad instead. He came through the fire unharmed.
So the festival is celebrated with big bonfires. The flames are believed to purify the air of anything evil. Fire is like a visible image of the power of the gods and goddesses. People throw offerings onto the bonfires such as popcorn, coconut and chick peas, showing thanks for the Spring and the growth of crops.
Hindus teach that everything that grows comes from God, so being thankful for food is important. Holi is also known as the Festival of Colour.
You may like to watch this video as a recap. I know you are far too old for cbeebies but the clips are very easy to understand and I know how tired you all are!
Task: Choose one (or more) of the activities below:
Make a grid in your book and make comparisons between the festival of Holi and a chosen Christian tradition.
Can you design a poster to advertise the Hindu festival Holi and then a poster advertising a Christian festival
Create a Rangoli pattern full of bright colours for the festival of Holi
Create a menu of Indian food that could be served at either Diwali or Holi
Design a piece of artwork/poem or write the story behind Holi.
Create your own way of sharing all you have found out about the Hindu festival Holi
Make sure you tune in for the ‘Class 4 Award Ceremony’ tomorrow
Have a great day
