Our big question has been....
'Why do Christians think that being a pilgrim is a good analogy for life itself?'
Jasper made this fantastic power point as an extra challenge as he was so interested in this topic.
In Otter Class this term we have been asking how Buddha teaches his followers enlightenment. We learnt how Buddha was enlightened under a fig tree, which came to be known as the Bodhi (or "enlightenment" tree). He was very grateful for the shelter that the Bodhi tree gave him, and so Otter Class thought about 3 things that they are grateful for. They wrote their responses on a Bodhi leaf, which they coloured in, and we made a display.
We also learnt about another important Buddhist symbol: the Lotus flower. The Lotus flower signifies perseverance, and Otters demonstrated perseverance by learning how to draw a Lotus flower! They followed step-by-step instructions so everyone could have a go, even those less confident in drawing. We think you'll agree that their perseverance paid off!
