On Wednesday 19th January Mrs Kumari came to talk about Hinduism
to P5. Mrs Kumari is one of the P6 teachers in Lower School. We
talked about religion all over the world and looked at a world map
to find the United Kingdom and India. India is where the Hindu
religion first started.
We learned about Hindu gods and goddesses, Hindu festivals, how
they dress and everyday life. The first part of the presentation
was about the names and forms of the gods and goddesses. Then we
learned about Hindu festivals. There was Dusshera the festival of
good and evil, Diwali the festival of light, Holi the festival of
colour and Rakhi the festival between brother and sister.
Mrs Kumari had brought some of her Indian traditional clothing
to let us look at. She let us see how to put on a sari.
The piece of fabric was very long. Rachel Page P5X got dressed
in a beautiful, green sari and she wore green bangles and a green
bindi on her forehead. Then we saw a video of people praying
was a very interesting presentation and we all found out lots of
new information about Hinduism.
