Year 4 visit a Buddhist Temple

Year 4 travelled to visit a Buddhist Temple on Monday 19th September. Here is a personal account from two Year 4 pupils: Nicholas  and Tishe.

 

For our first trip in Year 4 we went to the Buddhist temple in Wimbledon. A monk showed us around the temple. He showed us how to meditate and pray to Buddha. The Buddha is called Prince Siddhartha. He told us about the Middle Way. Buddhism was originated in Thailand. Before we went in the temple we had to take our shoes off. When we went in he told us about the 5 precepts. We really enjoyed this first trip of Year 4!
