Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu temple
On Tuesday 6th December, Year 4 visited a Hindu temple in Leicester. The children were impeccably behaved as we learnt about Hindu worship and beliefs. The visit really complemented the learning we've been doing in our RE lessons about 'Hindus in Britain today'. Thank you to the Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir temple for such an interesting learning experience.
Year 5 and Year 2 enjoyed a faith visit to the Shreer Hindu Temple in Leicester. The children were very lucky because, as we arrived, we were able to witness how Hindus conduct their daily morning worship. The children were offered blessings and the priest talked about the main Gods and their importance to Hindus. Thank you to the Shreer Hindu community for their warm welcome.
Year 5 had the wonderful opportunity to visit a Gurdwara in Leicester. We received a warm welcome and we were able to observe Sikhs in their place of worship. We also had the opportunity to explore a museum which has models of Sikh Temples across the world and paintings of Gurus.
Visit to the Jain Temple Leicester
On 24th February 2015, year 3 children visited the Jain Temple in Leicester. Children learnt about the ancient religion and had an opportunity to find out about this faith from people within the Jain community. The children saw elaborate mirror work, marble carvings, people worshiping and they were also invited to take part in a 'thank you' ceremony. All of the children were very respectful and listened carefully and attentively to the speaker.
