Sikh Symbol, Khanda Video
An explanation of the Khanda and Khalsa and how the former is the symbol that represents the latter. The young man presenting makes a Khanda for his bedroom and explains how the three elements remind Sikhs of God and his power. At every Vasakhi the Nishan Sahib (the name given to the flag) is lowered, the pole washed in milk, and then a new flag is attached and raised.
Buddhist Symbols Interactive
This application consists of a drag and drop labelling exercise for symbols used within the Buddhist temple. By clicking on each symbol, pupils can access a summary information panel about that particular symbol to further explore its symbolic meaning. In the matching activity, the symbols can then be dragged to the corresponding description.
Celebrating Christmas Video
This clip adds to the cultural celebrations of Christmas which are typical in Britain, some consideration of the special aspects of the festival for Christians. Advent, a four week countdown with advent wreath and 5 candles, symbolises Jesus as the light of the world. Nathan uses an Advent Calendar that is about remembering Jesus, not just scoffing chocolate every day! We see a Nativity play at a primary school, where children take the parts of characters in the story to make Christmas story feel real: they sing ‘Our light has come! The Son is born today.’ The special Christian Christmas celebrations include ‘Midnight Mass’ or a communion service very late on Christmas Eve.
