Sorry to see that this account of the Buddha's life begins with Once upon a time- this is generally known as a marker for a fictional story, whereas the Buddhe was a real person with a true life history.
Brilliant!. Now sorted for my KS1 Assembly tomorrow.
Very useful. Thanks for this. I will use some of these activities with my year 6 children in preperation for them retelling the story of Siddhartha.
Helpful resource. Thanks for this information on Wesak. It is simple (in the best sense of the word!) and user friendly and can be adapted for any age in Primary - really helpful.
Ta. Great! Thanks it's so hard to find kid-friendly resources for teaching Wesak in school.
