Year 3 Wesak Lanterns
This term Year 3 have been learning about Buddhism. The celebration of Wesak or Buddha Day will be celebrated by many Buddhists on Wednesday 26th May. Wesak celebrates the Buddha's birthday and, for some Buddhists, also marks his enlightenment and death. Celebrations vary from one country to another. In Thailand and Indonesia, for example, special Wesak lanterns are made of paper and wood. We made Wesak lanterns too.
