Last Thursday we went to a Hindu temple in Lewisham. In RE we have been doing Hinduism. Before we entered we took our shoes off because Hindus believe that if you come inside somewhere with your shoes on it brings in dirt from the street. Hindus do not eat meat and a cow in particular because they believe Vishnu’s wife is inside a cow. We saw a statue of Ganesh he was holding a mango a coconut was in front of him. There was a statue of Shiva’s army. When you come into a temple you always worship Ganesh first.
Last week, year 4 went on a school journey to Windmill Hill for three days.We did lots of amazing activities that sometimes took a lot of bravery. When we set off a lot of kids including me,were quite sad about leaving and a few cried. The journey took a while because we were going all the way to Sussex.We sung a lot of songs and chatted a lot to each other. A girl in my class even told a horror story!When we finally got there we all started singing because it looked awesome.When we got off,our teachers divided us into different groups with some of our friends.These were our dormitory mates.We had little dormitories with numbers on the door.We unpacked and got ready for the activities.Our instructors introduced themselves.Their names were Taylor and Collette. We learnt about teamwork and for lots of us it was a new experience.The activities were wall climbing,ab-sailing,problem solving,zip wire,sports,team games,activity course and archery.We had lovely instructors who were very kind to us,even when we sometimes talked.There was a cafeteria that we used for breakfast,lunch and supper.It was very grand.There was a hot food bar and a buffet that you could choose from.There were also drink machines but for things like coffee and tea you needed assistance from an adult.We also went to the gifts shop were we bought a lot of things.Too soon our time was over.On the final night there was a disco! The next morning we left.When we got home we were very happy to see our family but dissapointed that we had to leave.
