“I can see kum kum powder on the murti”
As part of Religious Education, this week Year 1 and Year 4 have been on educational visits to places of worship in Newham. Year 1 have been looking at what it means to belong to Christianity and visited a church. When they got back to school the children couldn’t wait to build their own churches! We already have some budding architects in the making.
Year 4 have been learning about how and why Hindus worship at home and in temples. The pupils visited a temple; they asked some fascinating questions and made some interesting observations:
Why are there so many different gods?
Why is there music playing in the background?
Why does the pundit dress like this?
What is the mala for?
