This term in RE, UKS2 are looking at the theme of forgiveness across different faiths.
To launch our theme, we had a visit from Indri, a member of the Hindu community. Indri told the children many Hindu stories about forgiveness including the story of Holi, which happened to be that very day! The children were taught how to put on traditional Holi festival clothing and how to perform a traditional Holi dance. They were even able to paint their faces using traditional Holi festival patterns (dots, swirls and flowers). The children had a fantastic morning dressing up and celebrating Holi as well as learnt about the importance of and beliefs around forgiveness. We will now compare this teaching to other faiths throughout the term.
