I have found out that Sikhs believe in one God just like us Christians.
I would like to learn more about the life and work of the Guru Nanak.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Good question Lily G: Sikhs pray at the gurdwara. The gurdwara can be a room at home where the family pray. They also visit a large building where many people meet and pray. We have been learning about a building like this in RE Lily, do you remember? You and your friends have helped Mrs G paint this special place. The Golden Temple in India.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikhs never cut their hair. This is part of their religion.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

The Daily Life of a Sikh. Every Sikh is expected to get up in the morning before dawn. After taking a bath he or she should meditate on the Name of God.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikhs, once they become Amritdhari (baptised) via the Amrit Sanchar (baptism ceremony), are forbidden from eating Kutha or ritually-slaughtered (Halal, Kosher) meat because it transgresses one of the four restrictions in the Sikh Code of Conduct.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikhs cannot drink alchohol or put anything into their body that could harm their body.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikh men wear turbans and the ladies wear chunnies (a long scarf) to cover their hair. This is as a sign of respect.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikhs take their shoes off when entering the gurdwara (Holy Temple). This is as a sign of respect too.

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Sikhs s mainly sing their prayers. We have listened to some men doing this when they were in the gurdwara (Temple). The whole of Reception class have really enjoyed learning about Sikhism. They especially love hearing the singing of prayers. This singing is called Shabads.
