Infant Storytime

Buddhist Temple

Posted by Mr Waywell on Feb-20-2017

Our World Faith week was based on Buddhism.  As part of our learning, Year 6 took a trip to Manjushri Buddhist Centre in Ulverston.

Whilst there we learned about:

  • different Buddhas
  • how to meditate
  • Buddhist symbols

We also got some time to do some art work; to hug a huge tree and to throw stones into the sea.

Wedding of the Week

I forgot to add the photographs from our “Wedding of the Week”.

In RE Year 6 are learning about the sacraments.  Mr Waywell and Mrs Whitmore decided to get married and show them what a marriage ceremony was like.  Mrs Whitehead took the reigns to perform the ceremony with best men, brides maids and a very supportive group watching the wedding.
