On Thursday, the class enriched their RE learning with a visit to a local monastery. We all gained a fascinating insight into the day to day rituals of Buddhist monks and nuns, along with further knowledge about the beliefs and practices of the Buddhist community. The children showed excellent behaviour throughout the morning and were a credit to yourselves and the school. They also had the opportunity of taking part in some simple meditation, which fits in well with our focus on Mindfulness and gave them some strategies for relaxing and clearing their minds. Here are a few photos below and a larger selection has been added to the Year 6 Gallery.
Have a wonderful, relaxing and calming weekend !
