Temple discoveries: Year 4 takes a trip to a Gurdwara to learn more about the Sikh faith
A primary school in Brighouse has taken their religious education a step further by stepping outside of the classroom to visit a temple in order to learn more about different faiths.
Year 4 students from Woodhouse Primary school in Brighouse visited the Gurdwara Singh Sabha to learn about Sikhism.
The children’s tour guide, Manjit Kaur, explained all about the 5Ks, meditated with the children, showed the children the prayer room and explained to the group of enthralled youngsters how they look after the Guru Granth Sahib.
Manjit also played music for the children, allowed the students to play traditional Sikh instruments and taught them how to tie a turban. The children loved having a go at tying a turban in small groups.
Eight-year-old Radha said: “I enjoyed learning about the Guru Granth Sahib and our guide was really friendly. He said everybody was welcome.”
Milan, also eight, said: “I liked the meditation session and I would like to do it more often.”
Reece, eight, added: “I enjoyed listening to the music that the guide played for us.”
