#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

This complete series of five Sikhism lessons for upper KS2 is ideal to build on your pupils' existing understanding of this major world religion. Focusing on worship and beliefs, your class will find out how Sikhs remind themselves of the guiding principles of Sikhism, their commitment to their faith, and the role of Sikhs within their own, and wider, communities.

This scheme of work includes detailed lesson planning, Sikhism worksheets, slides with images and information about Sikhism and its places of worship and a range of differentiated learning activities.

With the included slides, worksheets and activities, children will learn all about Guru Nanak and the nine other gurus who founded and shaped the Sikh religion. They'll also be reminded of some of the core principles of Sikhism and the ways in which Sikhs worship.

You'll introduce them to the Mool Mantar (or Mool Mantra) and the importance of the Ik Onkar symbol for 'one God'.
