Did you know that Hinduism is one of the worls's oldest religions?

Last week, Mrs Williams and her mother visited Years 3 and 4 to share their knowledge of the Hindu faith.


Hinduism is one of the world's oldest religions. Around 750 million follow this religion, which originated in Northern India near the river Indus, about 4000 years ago.

Hinduism is practised by more than 80% of India's population.


Thursday began with a demonstration of how to make chapatis. All children had a turn to roll their own chapati, a skill which is harder than it looks! They then sampled their work with a little sugar and butter, although chapatis are often eaten with savoury dishes.


On the following morning, we were treated to a fascinating introductory talk about the way that Hindus mark and celebrate the stages in the life of a person, from when they are born. We saw real saris as well as a salwar kameez, which men sometimes wear.


In the afternoon the children were able to experience their own henna tattoo.

We had a thoroughly educational and enjoyable time and found out so many interesting facts. Many thanks to Mrs Williams and her mother for spending so much of their time with us.
