Wiltshire RE Starter Stimulus Starter ideas for the following key question from the 2011 Agreed Syllabus: KS1 9 What does it mean to belong? This resource aims to provide some stimulus images and ideas to help pupils begin to address the above question. It links to the following learning outcomes from p42 of the syllabus: Pupils can: identify symbols of belonging from their own experience and for Christians and at least one other religion, suggesting what these might mean show an awareness that different people belong to different religions retell what happens at a traditional Christian infant baptism /dedication and suggest what actions and symbols mean Many of the slides have notes to give suggestions for use. Look at the slide show in Normal mode and look for the notes at the bottom of the page.
Sarah has blue eyes and blonde hair. She is 6 years old. Can you think of any groups she might belong to? Now look at her picture. Are there any clues? Hello, I’m Sarah. I am 6 and I go to an infant school in a big town. On Monday night I go to Rainbows and on Sunday I go to Little Kickers, our local under 8’s football team. I belong to a really big family with my mum and dad and 3 brothers.
Gabby has brown eyes and brown hair. She is 8 years old. Can you think of any groups she might belong to? Now look at her picture. Are there any clues? Hello, I’m Gabby. I am 8 and I go to a primary school in the village I live in. On Monday night I go to Brownies and on Sunday I go to a church. It takes place in a school hall. I go to a fun children’s group. I have two brothers in my family, and my mum and dad.
What extra signs of belonging could you add to these pictures now?
Sent by Uncle Ian in Scotland A memory of when Mum and Granny were baptised Used to make a cross on the head of the baby and gently poured on the baby. Used for scooping water Here are some clues to how some people show they belong to one religion.
Next steps: a) Role play Set up the role play for baptism or ask older children to create an area for younger children. Discuss with the children what will be needed. A bowl, water, doll, white dress, shell, card, candle, food for a celebration. Before opening the area discuss all the artefacts and their meaning. Talk about water being used to mark a fresh start with God for Christians. b) Enquire into... Ask the children to identify what they would like to find out more about in infant baptism or another belonging ceremony such as aqiqah in Islam. Infant baptism on video See: www.cleo.net.uk/resources/index.php?ks=1&cur=15 www.cleo.net.uk/resources/index.php?ks=1&cur=15 c) Ask a Christian Ask some older children or adults who have been baptised what it means to them. Invite some in to the class to answer questions. Your local vicar would have some things to say. It might be interesting to ask a Baptist in too – to explain their idea of dedication and believer’s baptism.
