Religious Studies KS1: The Hindu Story of Rama and Sita
Rama and Sita is one of the main stories from Hinduism.
This story is connected with Diwali - the annual festival of light held every autumn.
It is about Rama rescuing Sita from a demon King Ravana with the help of Hanuman and his monkey army.
This short film is part of an animated series called Religions of the World.
Pupils could make a Diva lamp using clay.
They could discuss how Hanuman and Rama were able to defeat Ravana by working as a team.
How does working as a team help us? Pupils could try out some activities as a team and alone, comparing both to see when are they able to achieve more.
This short film will be relevant for teaching KS1 religious studies in England and Northern Ireland, Foundation Phase in Wales, and Early and 1st Level Religious and Moral Education in Scotland.
