On Thursday 27th February, a visitor who was a Sikh came to talk to us about Sikhism. Sikhism is a fifth largest religion in the whole world. Gurmukhi is one language which they learn. They have leaders which Sikhs call Gurus. Guru means they take away your darkness and give you your light. There are five K’s - the Kirpan is a knife which is the symbol to say stop and help others. The Kesh is a hat they wear to cover their hair because they make a promise to not cut their hair.

Mr Singh came in to teach us about Sikhism. Mr Singh told us about the Guru, a special book that has all the writings of the ten human Gurus. Mr Singh sang a song to us that they normally sing at the Gurdwara (meaning door to the Guru) and the only word that is in the song is Waheguru.

The ‘Gu’ part of Guru means takes away darkness and the ‘Ru’ part means gives light. The harmonium is an instrument that Mr Singh showed us that forces air through. The Kangha is a comb they use to comb out negative energy. Also a Kara is a ring that they wear on their arm and it reminds them that The One is always watching.
