Interfaith Trail

This week Year Two have been on the Interfaith Trail. We visited a Mosque, a Mandir and a Church. We loved learning all about the different places of worship and listening to the leaders. We found out lots of interesting facts.

 In the Mosque we visited the washroom, we had to was many parts of our bodies including our nose, inside our mouth and our arms up to our wrist.

 

 In the Mandir we thought the main shrine at the front was beautiful and colourful. We learned all about the Murti Statues inside and the offerings people bring for them.

 The paintings on the roof of the Mandir were beautiful. They had been painted by 5 artists from India and had gold leaf on many of the pictures. We loved looking up at the colourful paintings.

 Finally we visited the Church. We loved looking at the stained glass windows and finding the different crosses around the Church.

We had a fabulous day learning about different cultures and religions. What was your favourite part of the day?
