Good morning, happy Friday!
We found a baby sparrow behind our fridge, Mrs T is already picking her
not sure how it got there, but its parents first cucumbers!
were shouting loudly for it, so we have put
it somewhere safe outside for them to find.
It's maths challenge day again! Have go at this,
or have a go at the Code Cracker activity all about area:
Today, I want you to choose 2 pictures in the story. Pause the video at a place you find interesting and sketch a quick drawing of it.
Then underneath make 3 boxes
Add words to these boxes to describe, what the girl ( or the boy or other characters) can see, hear and feel.
Finally use these words to write a few interesting sentences to include the words in your boxes.. Try not to use 'the girl' too often.
I have attached my ideas for one picture so you can see how I thought my sentence would work.
I have also attached some pictures you might like to use, or you can freeze frame the video instead if you prefer.
Atman and Puja
Do you remember that last time we were looking at the meaning of Atman - which is your true self or what sort of person you really are. Have a little think - Are you the kind of person you seem on the outside? Do you sometimes pretend to be a little kinder than you are? What is the real you like?
Puja is a way of worshipping to really concentrate on you and your soul. Do you remember the clips you watched last time ( with that annoying but funny "Blue" character)? They are here if you need to see them again.
These films remind us how important the 5 senses are during worship. This is very important to Hindu people for thinking about the whole self. Different things are used to help with this:
The temple ( Mandir) is very bright and decorated with garlands. There are Murtis (statues) to help you see god in different forms
A family standing in front of the statues (murtis) and a multi decorated with garlands.
You will hear singing, bell ringing and the sound of a conch (shell) being blown
You will see the statues being washed and a bindi put on your head(dot) and feel your hands together as you pray.
You will taste the special blessed sweets called prasad.
You will smell the incense burning. It smells like perfume.
Choose from these activities to show you understand about Hindu worship.
