Multi Faith week
It's been Multi Faith week here at St George's. Check out the galleries as well please!
This week is Mutifaith week!
Every afternoon this week the children will have the chance to learn about different beliefs and celebrate diversity.
Prags is here today teaching the children all about the Sikh faith.
The staff have lots of exciting activities planned so I’m sure everyone will have fun and learn a lot.
Class 5 visited the mosque.
They showed off their knowledge, listened carefully and found loads of similarities to the Christian faith.
Well done Class 5!
Year 6 have learned the real importance and value of friendship through the Hindu story of Krishna and Sudama. True love and friendship does not differentiate between wealth and poverty or between people of high and low status. The children made some lovely posters and cards about their special friends.
Class 6 had a go at making their apples cookies to celebrate the life of Guru Nanak in our multi faith week.
Class 7 walked around our woodland area looking for possible reasons for and against our discussion text question; ‘Should the trees at the back of school be cut down to allow for further development?’
The children had lots of reasons that we will look at further before writing our discussion text.
Class 3 came to the purple room this afternoon to learn about Islam.
We washed our hands and feet before coming to sit on our prayer mat on the carpet and listened to the call to prayer before we learned about the 5 pillars of Islam.
We listened to a story about how Muslims value animals, then drew our favourite animal and wrote how we would care for that animal.
Class 6 and their artwork of Krishna. Krishna is the Hindu god of compassion, love and tenderness. He is often depicted with his flute, cows and peacocks. Some great work and detail
Class 7 and their Apple cookie la to celebrate Guru Nanak Gurpurab. They went down very well !
Class 4 started their multi faith week by finding out about the different Hindu gods, followed by some creative activities.
Class 11 started Multi Faith Week by exploring the 4 Noble Truths of Buddhism, and how they linked to suffering in our world today. We also learnt about the 5 Ks of Sikhism with Prags.
Class 7 began Multi Faith Week this afternoon, with a session with Prags learning about Sikhism. The children remembered lots of information she had talked about during worship. Then it was back to class to focus on Hinduism. We talked about what a friend is, what makes a friend and why it is important to have good friends. We then watched and listened to the story of Krishna and Sudama and their friendship. The children designed their own friendship quote about a friend of their choice and the qualities they have. Finally, we learned more about Krishna and then the children used a range of art materials to draw their interpretation of Krishna.
Class 5 have had a great first day exploring different faiths for Multifaith week.
This morning they enjoyed a session with Prags, learning more about Sikhism. They had lots of artefacts to look at and learn all about their meaning and importance to the faith.
This afternoon, they stayed in Class 5 to join in a session all about Islam with myself. We discussed their place of worship, their Holy Book, their worship rituals, their beliefs including Allah and Prophet Mohammad and the 5 pillars of Islam. We watched a couple of stories from when it is recorded that the Prophets appeared to people to remind them of the importance of all living creatures, no matter how big or small. The children designed their own poster to show the importance of all animals in the eyes of Allah and the prophets and how we must treat them well and with care and respect.
