Hello Year 6! During the Summer Term you have looked at Art in different religions. You have discussed your favourite colours and discovered that they have significance in the Christian Calendar. You have looked at images and icons in stained glass windows and discussed paintings of Jesus’ life. You also considered the patterns used in Islamic art and designed a prayer mat or Mehndi pattern.     Now can you answer these questions? What have you found out about art in religion? What is the purpose of stained glass windows? What has been your favourite activity and why? Do you use ICT in your SMSC lessons? What else would you like to find out about Art in religion? Are there any trips that you would like to go on related to the Topic?

    Art in religion is used to symbolise the specific religion’s beliefs.The purpose of stained glass windows are often to tell a story or have a setting on it. My favourite activity was designing our own stained glass windows because i had got to design a pheonix. I do not use ICT in my lessons as it would just distract me from the task at hand. I would also like to find out what is the actual purpose of stained glass windows. And I would like to go on a trip to a religious place of worship e.g mosques 🕌, churches ⛪, temples and more.

    All art in religion normally shows some kind of meaning. And the purpose of stain glass windows is that it shows a story which has a meaning. My favourite activity was to draw because then you get to see what the outcome is when you finish your drawing. Yes we use ITC because we use the iPads in class. My question is that does every religion focus on art to portray meaning. By Moman

    Art in religion can be different and can vary. Stain glass windows are to show the life of Jesus and to symbolise peace. My favourite activity was to create Islamic patterns.yes we use the iPads.were did religious art first start.i would like to go to a mosque

  20. Safa M.

    Art in different religions symbolise different things and stories. Stained glass windows show Jesus teachings and in the olden times people couldn’t read so they would look at the windows. I have liked designing a stained glass window. We do use ICT in lessons because we research about religions. Why some of the arts in religions are similar but have different stories behind them.
    I do not have any suggestions for where to go?
