We had a fantastic day on Tuesday learning lots about Hinduism with Susmita Roy. Mrs Roy talked about and shared some of the things she does. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to understand that there are many different religions, each with special and important beliefs, rituals, ideas and practices.
The children enjoyed dressing up, dancing and creating rangoli patterns. They looked at books from India and handled precious artefacts. Mrs Roy told the children the story of Rama and Sita and we followed that up with some fantastic drama.
The children were amazing, they were interested and respectful, asking really thoughtful questions. Mrs Roy commented on the children’s wonderful behaviour and engagement.
