Learning about Buddhism with Year 2
Year 2 are learning about different faiths and have visited the Buddhist Centre in Manchester as part of their studies. The children looked at various artefacts that are important in Buddhist worship. They learned about the principles of the Buddhist faith – kindness, respect, awareness and wakefulness.
The children entered the beautiful shrine and performed some meditative thinking. They meditated on the importance of being kind to our friends and being thankful for all that we have.
A wonderful time was had by all, and the Centre has extended a warm welcome to any families that would like to visit. Please speak to the Year 2 teachers if you would like more details.
