Year 4’s Hindu Shrine

Last Friday, in RE,  Year 4 learnt that Hindus can worship in a temple called a Mandir or at home and that they do so in front of a shrine. A shrine  can be anywhere in your home and usually has a murti (statue of a Hindu god or goddess), a bell, some kum kum powder, some water, some fruit  and some flowers.

The children enjoyed designing their own shrine in our classroom and making flowers for it.

Well done, Year 4!

Year 3’s trip to the Mandir

On the 23rd November Year 3 went on a trip to the Hindu Temple also known as the Mandir.

We were invited in to the temple and shown to the worship room where we got to see all the Hindu Gods and learn lots of interesting things.

We learnt all the Hindu Gods names – well 10 of them, about Hindu weddings and also about what the Hindus might have in a shrine at home.

We had a fantastic time and felt so welcomed, the Hindu priest also gave us a gift as we left.

RE and Science in Year 4

Year 4 children and teachers would like to give a great big THANK YOU to Olivia and Harveer for leading parts of our lessons this week. Olivia brought in her Guinea pig and taught us how to look after it. Harveer talked about Sikhism and showed us the bracelets and magnet he bought from his visit to the Golden Temple.

Well done to you both.

Year 6 Remembrance Day

Last week, Year 6 took some time to remember the wars, the soldiers – past and present, their families and their own lives.

They made some poppy crosses and some beautiful artwork which contained their own poems. Here are some examples of their exceptional work (click to enlarge).

The week was finished with the whole school 2 minute silence.

Bradford Cathedral

Yesterday, year six visited Bradford Cathedral for their annual leavers service. They discussed ‘Loving, Living and Learning.”

Manchester attack prayers and thoughts

This morning, in class prayers, Year 5 were talking about the tragic events in Manchester and how we can deal with these kinds of rare but awful events.

We watched the advice video on BBC Newsround  and then wrote some really thoughtful prayers. Here is the website if anyone would like some advice. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/13865002

Here are our prayers and thoughts.

Everyone at St.Paul’s CE Primary sends all their prayers and love to anyone affected by the events in Manchester this week.

Year 3 enjoyed a visit to Bradford Cathedral.  They had a guided tour, a mosaic craft workshop and a musical organ experience.  The children asked lots of interesting questions and they were complimented on their excellent behaviour.

Here are some of the photographs that were taken today.

Well done Year 3!

This morning we learnt how different faiths show respect for their sacred objects and places of worship.

Thank you to my little helpers who did a fantastic job!

S.Patrick’s Day Year 5

Today we learnt about St. Patrick’s Day and why people celebrate. We talked about the patron saints of each country in the UK and why British people celebrate.

Here are some facts we learnt.

  • St.Patrick became a Christian priest. He returned to Ireland and converted many Irish people to Christianity
  • People wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day.  Some people wear costumes or funny hats
  • Some people go to church in t
    he morning. In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day has primarily been a religious festival. There are parades all around the world.

We then made a shamrock sun catcher to put up at the window. The shamrock is a St. Patrick’s Day symbol because St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the concept of the Holy Trinity. The three leaves represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

Wishing a very happy St.Patrick’s day to everyone.

Well done, Year 4!

We’ve just had another fantastic week!

The children have been busy learning about Egypt, making Christingle oranges for our service in church, writing and performing their own poems. And these poems just blew our minds!

In Maths they did some work on symmetry and different types of lines. They also showed a lot of understanding and creativity when making symmetrical shapes with a partner in PE.

Well done, everyone!
