As part of our continuing work looking at different world religions, Blue Class have been learning all about the rituals associated with Hindu prayer. The pupils took part in an interactive session on the whiteboard, showing the importance that Hindus place on the worship of a shrine. We learnt how some Hindu families might have a shrine in their own home, and how Hindu children might go about praying to the shrine as part of their daily routine.
We also demonstrated this in the classroom, with a table converted into a temporary shrine, with all the relevant objects placed in the correct order. Blue Class took it in turns to remember the name of the objects of worship, and then to explain how a Hindu child might use these as part of their religion.
