Year 2 Gurdwara

As part of year 2s learning pupils visited a Sikh place of worship, the Gurdwara this week.

The trip to the Gurdwara was great! It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to be able to learn more about the Guru Granth Sahib, as well as, have their questions answered by an experienced person. Prior to the trip, the children learnt about how Sikh’s treated the Guru Granth Sahib and why it is a very important book, it was very interesting tofind out more about the Guru Granth Sahib. The Gurdwara was beautiful and the people there were very lovely. It was very kind of them to give us 2 tubs of chocolate.
