We welcomed Sunita to our school this week. She follows the Hindu faith, which she shared beautifully with our children during her time with us. We loved hearing the story of the Holi festival in assembly, including learning about the colourful practice of throwing powders at one another during the celebrations!
Year 5, who have been learning about Hinduism this term, took part in a workshop on Hindu worship. They saw pictures of a range of Mandirs (temples) from across the world, handled objects from worship ceremonies, tried on traditional clothes and jewellery and tasted sakar (sugar crystals). The opportunity to speak directly to a person of faith and ask questions was a valuable learning experience for the children. Many thanks to our visitor for providing a memorable experience for our Freeman's family.
