Panjabi & Sikh Studies
In Year 1 the main focus this term has been on Vaisakhi, since we are celebrating the creation of Khalsa by dhan dhan Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. First, we learnt how the Khalsa was created by Guru Gobind Singh Ji at Anandpur Sahib. We also learnt some key vocabulary from the story.
After, the children learnt about 5K’s which are called Panj Kakaar in Panjabi. Pupils also learnt the names of 5K’s and their meanings. Every child took part in the Vaisakhi assembly where they sung special related shabads. They also learnt about the Nishan Sahib and took part in the seva of Nishan Sahib.
Now, some children are making posters about the 5K’s and writing their names in Panjabi. In addition to this, we have been making 3D models of the 5K’s and making cross curricular links.
