Hinduism is one of the world's oldest and largest religions.  We have been learning how it originated near the River Indus in India about 4,000 years ago and now has around 750 million followers worldwide.  

We put our Geography skills to good use, identifying countries across the globe with a large Hindu population.  Within Wellingborough itself, Hinduism is the second largest religion after Christianity according to census data.

We looked at the country of India and what the culture and climate is like there.  We were able to look at some real Indian wedding outfits brought in by a member of staff, which gave us a taster of some of the traditions there.
