Year 3 trip to The Neasden Mandir
‘The stone and wood carvings were fascinating,’ this was Year 3’s response when asked about their visit to The Neasden Mandir. The trip has been insightful as it deepened the children’s understanding of Hinduism. We learnt about the history of The Neasden Mandir and what happens during ‘Arti,’ which is a prayer offered in greeting and thanksgiving to God. Year 3 also experienced a ‘Murti Puja,’ which is the key Hindu practice of worshipping sacred images of God.
The first half of this half term draws to a close after yet another busy period for the school. We have finished showing around a large number of parents (nearly 200) , who are interested in a Reception place, whilst also helping children in Year 6 prepare for the final few months of their time here. This newsletter will give you a flavour of what has been happening in school but there is also a great deal of information on our Twitter account https://twitter.com/montpelier_sch that I hope you are able to access. Please do ensure you look regularly at www.iMontpelier.com as this will give specific information about the curriculum and learning related to your own child. Wishing you all a restful and enjoyable half term break.
