Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Amazing artefacts!

Year 4 explored some amazing Hindu artefacts and learnt about how Hindus worship at the Mandir!

Skylarks and Kestrels enjoyed an exciting lesson in the hall, completing a quiz about different Hindu artefacts.

The hall was set up as a museum, and the children walked around, looked at artefacts or pictures of artefacts and worked together to match information to each artefact. They looked at statues of the different Hindu Gods such as Ganesh and Lakshmi, they learnt about festivals such as Diwali and how Hindus worship at the Mandir and at home with a puja set. 

Back in the classroom, they watched a video about worship at the Mandir and labelled a picture. They then reflected on all they had learnt and shared their new knowledge with each other. 

"We got to learn new things and it was like a school trip to a museum even though it was in the hall," said Ellsie.

Adam explained, "We got to see beautiful statues and write different facts about them. It was fun because it was like a scavenger hunt."

Jodh said, "I liked it so much!"

Well done Year 4!
