Year 2's trip to the Sikh Gurdwara

Today the Y2 children visited a Sikh Gurdwara. They all covered their heads and took their shoes off as a mark of respect when they arrived. The children were led into a big hall where they met the Sikh priest. He was sat on a stool by the Holy Book which is placed on a throne so it can be kept clean. The children asked questions about why the world is so important to Sikhs and then they had a tour of the Gurdwara. They even got to see where the Holy Book is put to bed in a real bed every night! Then the children had a drink and biscuit very kindly provided by the Gurdwara before it was time to head back to school. Huge thanks to Mrs Jenkins for organising this valuable experience so that children can understand more about difference in beliefs and traditions.
