RE Day 2018 Buddhism

Here we are making freeze frames with Year Four to represent the Story of Buddha. Then we listened to a Tibetan Buddhist (one of our mums) to understand daily life a little more. We enjoyed meditating, learning about a Buddhist shrine and making prayer flags. We also thought about a path to happiness, linked to the Buddhist path to enlightenment.
