Autumn Term

Here is what 3 Elgar got to do last term:

On December 9th, 3E and 3S spent their morning in Turnham Green visiting St Michael's and All Saints, Church of England and the Buddhist Vihara. Father Thomas explained the importance of the church for Christians. He took us on a tour and talked to us about each part of the church as well as what happens during a mass, which is an act of worship for many people.

Then we made our way to the Buddhist Vihara which is the oldest Buddhist place of worship in London. One of the monks showed us around the Main Hall, the Library and the Shrine. He told us about how Buddhism began and about the importance of meditation. We also had a turn at practising meditating which, for Buddhists, is a way of exercising your mind and gaining wisdom. Mr Jones would have been impressed with our focus!
