Tuesday

English:

To create a poem in the style of Benjamin Zephaniah.

Look at stanza 1 of ‘Talking Turkeys’

What features and devices can you see that you can use in your own poem? The poem immediately addresses the reader. It repeats ‘turkeys’ a lot. Repetition of the first line. Criticism of humans and their actions.

Have a go at drafting your first stanza. Remember the purpose of your poem- to get people to empathise with the situation our oceans are in and how we can change it.

Topic:

What does Islam teach about Musa (Moses) and knowledge?

Find out about the story from the Prophet Musa (Moses). Believing in all the prophets is one of the six Pillars of Imaan (belief).

Think about it!

Ask children to discuss in small groups what a ‘know-it-all’ is. Why might a generally knowledgeable person be considered a know-it-all?

The difference is all about attitude:

Today’s story concerns prophet Musa (Moses) a significant prophet recorded in the Qur’an. One day a thought crossed prophet Musa’s (Moses) mind that he was the prophet of Allah (God) and the only prophet to whom Allah (God) spoke directly. Therefore, he thought he must be the most knowledgeable person in the world. Allah (God) knows what is in the hearts and minds of every person. Allah (God) asked Musa (Moses) to undertake a journey where he would meet a man called Khidr who had more knowledge than Musa (Moses) had even though he was not a prophet. The story is told in the Qur’an Chapter 18: 60-82.

Read about it!

Read the story of Khidr and Prophet Musa (Moses)

See the following resources.

English:

To create poem in the style of Benjamin Zephaniah.

Continue with stanza 2. Use the same format as yesterday.

Look at stanza 3.

What difference does it have in terms of empathy to talk about someone/ thing that you know in comparison to making a blanket statement?

Which animal will you personify in this section?

For example a turtle stuck in beer can rings or a bird with plastic inside after it had died.

What questions would those animals ask you? How can we pull on the heartstrings of the reader?

Remember you are creating empathy.

Think about it:

Ask the children to define a ‘perfect life’ in spiritual terms, in qualities and character traits (e.g. someone who is honest, generous, considerate, loving etc.).

Look at the below website in particular, the 24 dispositions highlighted in blue below the video.

https://www.faithmakesadifference.co.uk/content/24-dispositions

A creative task!

Make a large circle in the centre of a piece of paper.  Make 24 spokes that come from the wheel.  The below drawing has 12 spokes, start with this if you prefer.

On each spoke, write a disposition for you.  You can borrow some of the 24 dispositions from the above site, or maybe you have some of your own.  Use colours and be creative!

Something to consider!

Which dispositions would make it hard for their wheel to turn easily?

Friday

Read ‘Curse of the Cogston House’

Topic:

To explore the importance of reflection in the spiritual journey

Think about it!

 Muslims believe life is like a journey back to Allah (God). But it’s not just a journey in car, or on a train or to a place. It is mainly a journey of the heart, mind and soul in order to come the best person one can be. Muslims are meant to reflect on their lives, thinking deeply and learning as they go along – to make sure they do not make the same mistakes continuously.

Spirituality is defined by Muslims as a linking of actions to the purpose of life.

Look at the following resource:

Scenarios 1 and 2, week 6, day 5, RE

Answer the questions thinking about how the actions are linked to what the people want to achieve.  Discuss these scenarios with a family member.
