At Twin Sails we recognise that the personal development of children spirituality, morally, socially & culturally is crucial for them and for society as a whole.
We provide opportunities to explore values, religious & personal beliefs and the way they impact on peoples lives. This develops critical thinking, knowledge, understanding & empathy with others.
We support the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions regarding religion and belief. We therefore explore a range of religions and beliefs.
During our Diwali celebration the children experienced lots of exciting activities.
They had fun making rangoli patterns, learning a Diwali dance, making and eating sweet bread, retelling the story of Rama and Sita through role play and puppets.
They also designed and made a 'Diva lamp':
The children explored the question whether praying at regular intervals helps a Muslim in everyday life.
The children considered their experiences of weekly activities like clubs and compared it to a Muslim's commitment.
The children learned different parables and had fun using props to retell the story of man who couldn't walk.
