Sacred Places 

July 4th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today in RE we used the internet to research different places of worship. We found out that: 

  • in a synagogue the Torah scrolls are kept in the aron kodesh (holy ark) which is positioned on the wall that faces Jerusalem. 
  • in a gurdwara they have a main hall called a Darbar Sahib where they keep their sacred text the Guru Granth Sahib. 
  • churches are often shaped like a cross to symbolise the cross that Jesus died on. 
  • in a mandir Hindus pray and repeat the names of their favourite gods and godessses and repeat mantras. 
  • the person in charge of a mosque is called an imam. 

Can you remember anything else about the different sacred places?

Sacred Places

Today in RE we have been looking at sacred places for the five main religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism.  They are called: 

  • Gurdwara
  • Church
  • Mosque
  • Synagogue 
  • Mandir

Can you match the sacred place to the correct religion?

Today in Literacy we used the iPads to research features and the type of vocabulary used in biographies. We found out lots of interesting facts about famous people both past and present. We really enjoyed the lesson.
