This week Cherry class have been busy looking at different cultures. In art we looked Buddhism, The Festival of the Tooth. The tooth is a relic of the Buddha, it is housed in a specially built temple and can never be seen as it is kept in deep inside many caskets. Once a year, in August, there is a special celebration and festival for it, the tooth is taken from the shrine and paraded through the town on a large elephant. This elephant is draped in richly coloured fabrics and is accompanied by other decorated elephants. The children decorated their elephants, these adorn the school corridor and make and impressive line up.
