Week ending Friday 11th November 2022
A visit to a Mandir
Year 3 Visit A hindu Mandir and Bombay Stores
On Thursday, Year 3 visited the Lakshmi Narayan Hindu Temple in Bradford. The children were warmly welcomed into the temple and they particularly enjoyed looking at the murtis (statues) of some of the gods and goddesses from the Hindu religion on the beautifully decorated shrine. Another highlight was to dress in traditional Hindu outfits and to explore how Hindus worship at home and at a Mandir (Temple).
We did some activities in the Temple, we learned about what a Hindu marriage is like, we dressed up in saris and looked at the gods and goddesses . We saw how Hindus worship using their five senses.
We learned about the different qualities of the gods and why Hindus pray to them. I was interested in learning about Shiva, who is an important god in the Hindu religion.
In the Temple there was a shrine with lots of Murtis of gods and goddesses, they were colourful and beautiful.
I liked it when we went in the Temple, it smelled lovely, they were burning incense.
