Classroom activities

Symbolism (Key Stage 3)

Discuss the festival of Vaisakhi and the Amrit ceremony. Look at the Five Ks, showing some Sikh artefacts, and ask pupils to discuss in groups what they might stand for. Then, as a class, ask them to report back, informing other groups of their meaning.

Gurdwara (Key Stage 3)

Discuss the ways in which religious people give to others as individuals or members of communities. In what ways are pupils, or people they know, involved in community work?
