As part of their study of Hinduism in TPR, our intrepid Year 3 children visited the remarkable Bhaktivedanta Manor – Hare Krishna Temple, in Watford – their first school trip in almost two years!
During the visit, they walked respectfully around the Manor grounds and took part in a number of ‘not your normal Tuesday’ activities, starting with an oxen cart ride! The pupils then enjoyed a very interesting talk on Hinduism and had the opportunity to dress up as the main deities. Benji led the way as Lord Krishna and then all of the children dressed in traditional saris and shawls.
After lunch it was time for face and hand painting. The photos do not give justice to the fabulous artwork, which the boys and girls were equally delighted with – Sienna said she loved her pink and light blue flowers.
This was a fascinating trip for pupils and staff alike, and we are grateful to the staff at Bhaktivedanta Manor for teaching us so much in such a short time.
