Good morning Y6!

Today your home learning is going to be a little bit different as we are going to have an online RE day! Usually, we have one RE day each half term in which we study a religion and focus question. Although we can’t be together to enjoy RE day in school this half term, I hope that you enjoy completing RE day at home. So, today there will be no Maths, English, Reading etc, only RE lessons! This will enable you to really sink your teeth into your focus religion and hopefully learn lots of interesting facts.

Remember, learning about different religions and their beliefs is really important as it helps you to understand and therefore have tolerance and respect of other people’s cultures and beliefs.

Y6’s focus religion for this half term is Buddhism. Today, you will learn: who Siddhartha Gautama was; what the four noble truths of Buddhism were; what the eightfold path is; which festivals Buddhists celebrate; why Buddhists meditate and what life is like inside a Buddhist monastery. Just click the links to the Oak Academy lessons to begin! 😊

Lesson One – Who was Siddhartha Gautama?

Lesson Two – What are the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism?

Lesson Three – What is the Eightfold Path?

Lesson Four – Which festivals do Buddhists celebrate?

Lesson Five – Why do Buddhists meditate?

Lesson Six – What is life like inside a Buddhist monastery?

Your teachers and I would love to see examples of the work that you complete today, so please do email any work to the Y6 email address.

Have a wonderful day!
Miss Mason (RE Lead)
