The Rainbow                 

Some of you may be very familiar with this image of a rainbow. It has become a very important symbol of these times with a lot of children from around the world placing rainbows in their windows.


However, why and when does a rainbow appear?

This short video might help to explain:

Can you remember all the colours of the rainbow?

This video might help:

You could practice learning the colours by playing the games on this website:


Here are some crafts for you to try:


For both of these you will need a paper plate or semi-circle of card (could be from a cereal box?) along with tissue paper, colouring pens or pencils or perhaps paint with some cotton ball clouds to finish it off.

You might also like to try a Rainbow Treasure Hunt – you could make a sheet up like this to help you:

Finally, we can’t end our rainbow lesson without hearing the most famous rainbow song from the movies:

Hope you enjoyed learning about the rainbow!

RME – 12/5/20


May is a busy month for religious celebrations from around the world.

Wesak or Vesak is a special celebration time in Buddhism                                                    

that remembers the Buddha’s birthday.

To find out more about the story of Buddha have a look at this story:


Wesak Day is celebrated on the full moon in May and is the most important Buddhist festival.


To find out more information about this celebration, please click on this link to BBC Bitesize:


There are many important symbols in Buddhism, here are just two which you may already know: –


Here are some activities you could try:-

– an easy origami lotus flower made from a square of coloured paper

– or a trickier, but very pretty flower, made with different coloured squares

You  could also attempt to make some lotus flower designs from cup cake cases-

Here is an easy moon activity using some aluminium foil. Just crush up a circle of foil, flatten it out and stick it onto a background.

For a dharma wheel craft activity try this from CBeebies:

Finally, this pretty “stained glass” lotus flower is also a simple lesson in symmetry! It looks very pretty hung in a window for the light to shine through it, and would be perfect for Vesak celebrations.

You will need:

  • Black card
  • Pink tissue paper
  • Glue


Fold the card in half and draw on the petals of a lotus flower, using our photo as a guide.

Carefully cut out the pieces.

Glue a piece of pink tissue paper to the back of the card.

Hang your picture up against a window, or somewhere the light will shine through it.

Enjoy the Vesak activities!
