Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Jee - Tranquility10. Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee - Royal Courage11. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee- the embodiment of all ten Guru Sahibs and attributes

Test the kids on each Guru Sahibs name and see if they remember each attribute....perhaps make this a theme over next few weeks as well start to focus on the wives, sisters, mothers of the Gurus OR alternatively OR additionally do simran or mool mantar. 3Bana and Bani?

Hands up: What does Bana and Bani mean? The Bana" or form, the personal appearance of a Khalsa, is one of the foremost ways that a Khalsa maintains his or her consciousness as Sri Guru Gobind Singh intended.

The word "Bani" refers to their utterances and writings of the Gurus. So the combined word "Gurbani" means the writings of the Gurus as found Dhan Guru Granth Sahib Jee.

The Sikh uniform means nothing without Bani which provides the essence of the Bana.

Teachers to ask kids to write down and highlight meanings or provide the slide. Bani and Bana will be a test question. Explain to the kids that We looked at Bana (identity) in term 1 so in the next few lessons well focus on Bani.

Hands up: What is Nitnem?

Nit Nem: literally means "Daily routine or habit of Naam.

Nitnem is a collaboration of different banis that were designated to be read by Sikhs every day.

Bedtime Prayers - To be read last thing before sleeping.TASK: Draw up the above table and in the columns write which Bania should be read at these times.

Clue 1: There are 5 Bania in the morning. 1 in the evening and 1 before bed.

Another clue: These are the names of the 7 Bania but can you guess the right order? Kirtan Sohila, Jap Jee Sahib, Anand Sahib, Rehraas Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Chaupai Sahib and Tav Prasad Swayias.

Kids to draw up table or younger group teacher to provide template. Kids need to guess which Bania are usually read when. There is a build up of clues for the kids which teacher can add at one or two minute intervals and build up the clues and competition element. Alternatively, they can put the clues up straight away. 6Morning Prayers - To be read after bathing, following morning meditation at sunrise.Evening Prayers - To be read at sunset. Bedtime Prayers - To be read last thing before sleeping.

Or alternatively put up this answer slide after the verbal feedback. 8Power, effects & significance of the Nitnem Bania.

Now we know what the 7 Nitnem Bania are, lets find out about the power, effect and significance of each one.

GROUP TASK : Lets read through each statement together.

HANDS UP: Which Bani do YOU think it is? You must give a REASON too.

RESOURCE NITNEM SHEET Task 1: Teacher to ask pupil or pair to read a statement. TASK 2: Teacher gives kids a a silent thinking time minute to guess which bani it could be and why. TASK 3: Teacher to ask for verbal feedback but also REASON WHY. Different kids may have multiple reasons so spend some time listening to them. TASK 4: Everyone writes in correct answer. This mix and match will be a test question too. 9

Why do Nitnem? TASK 1: In pairs write down as many reasons as you can to explain WHY we should do daily Nitnem.

Please number each individual reason as there will be prizes for the longest lists!!!

TASK 2: As we watch the video add more reasons to your list.

If the teacher feels this will take too long they can save for catch up lesson. Kids to keep a numbered list of why we should do nitnem. Longest lists get a prize. Teacher to purchase prize and give receipt to Kani. Teacher can time then do verbal feedback or go straight into video to allow kids to add to lists. The teacher can go round each pupil for answers or kids can mark each others? Upto teacher re. feedback and timings. 11 minute video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lT5NSNze6_I Really half of video needed for the above task. This is upto teacher. Also teacher needs to watch video and research in order to make their own lists of reasons why. 10TASK: Thought shower barriers we face in trying to do daily Nitnem

Kids to write down barriers we face in trying to do daily nitnem. E.g not waking up, no santhyia, not understanding, lazy, no focus, no effort, lack of routine etc. The ELC will then be how to overcome the barriers. KIDS can write answers on board, or each kid gives a verbal answer or you do the whole task as a class. 11 Biggest problem: I dont understand the meanings??Sri Guru Har Rai Jee was once asked whether there was any benefit gained by reading the Gurus Bani without understanding it. "Yes," he replied, "as grease sticks to the pot even when it is emptied, so does the Gurus Word stick to the heart. Whether you understand it or not, the Word bears the Seed of Salvation. Perfume persists in the broken pieces even after the vase that contained it has been shattered."
