RE - Year 3 - Task 3: Naming Ceremonies

Introduction

Previously you learnt about how the arrival of a baby is a cause for celebration for a family and even for a community.  Today you are going to understand how a new baby is welcomed into a Hindu family.

The traditional ceremony of naming the baby in the Hindu way is known as the Namakaran ceremony.  This is a social and legal necessity and an important duty of the parents.  The naming process creates a bond between the child and the rest of the family, and therefore is a highly auspicious occasion. Traditionally the Namakaran ceremony is conducted in an elaborate form on the 12th day after birth.

The Namakaran ceremony

Watch the clip

  • The steps of a Namakaran ceremony.
  • The religious symbols used in the Namakaran ceremony.

Art - Year 3 - Lesson 6: My Window

Resources:

  • paper
  • pencil
  • colouring tools

Today we will use these artworks by David Hockney, who is displayed in Tate Modern, to inspire our work. Many artists are inspired by what they can see out of their window and Hockey completed many paintings and drawings of what he could see from different windows in different places.

Activity

Look out of a window at home, or in class, and draw the view.  Decide if you are going to draw the window frame as well, like Hockey.  It’s up to you.

NOTE:  If you are in a classroom with frosted windows, either;

  • Think of the view from a window at home and try to remember and draw as much as you can.  When you arrive home, look at the view - what did you remember and what did you miss; or
  • Imagine you are somewhere (jungle, Arctic, city) and draw what you think you might see.

To End

  • You could redraw the same view during a different time of the day or in different weather conditions.  Notice how the things you draw change.
  • If you have a printer, here are some colouring pages of Hockney landscapes.  Will you copy his colours or choose your own?

RE - Year 3 - Task 4:  Naming Ceremonies

Introduction:

Do other faiths celebrate birth in a special way?

Today you are going to think about how Christians celebrate a birth.

A christening is when a baby is welcomed into the Christian faith. Christening is the ceremony during which a child is given a name before Christ and is baptised.  The baby’s parents and friends all go to a church service.  Family and friends are gathered to celebrate the birth of the baby in a church.  Some prayers will be said by the priest to bless this child, followed by a bible reading from the parent. 

Have a look at the accompanying powerpoint to learn more about Christenings.

Task:

  • What have you learnt about the ceremony?
  • Explain how this ceremony is welcoming a baby into the Christian faith?
  • How is this ceremony different from the Hindu naming ceremony?

Art - Lesson 7:  Take a Line for a Curvy and Straight Walk

Resources:

  • Two pieces of paper
  • Pencil
  • Colouring tools

Today we will use very different lines to create two contrasting pieces of art.  One will only use straight lines and the other only curvy.  Compare these two artworks by David Hockney and Piet Mondrian, notice how the lines different.

Activity

Artwork 1 - Curvy Line

Place your pencil somewhere on your paper.  Now move it around your paper using curvy lines and do not lift your pencil from the paper until you have finished.  You could say you are taking your pencil for a curvy, wavy walk all over your paper.  Then, fill in the sections using different colours.

Artwork 2 - Straight Line

Before you begin, decide if you would like to use a ruler or challenge yourself to try to draw lines as straight as you can without one.  When ready, draw straight lines from one side of your paper to the other - draw a mixture of vertical, horizontal, close together and further apart.

Now use only blue, red and yellow to colour some of the squares or rectangles in your artwork.

To End

  • Challenge yourself to combine these two ways of drawing on one piece of paper.
  • You can also access colouring pages of artists to use a mixture of different lines here.
