Sam put lots of mini beasts in his sandwich. Eww!!

Can you find any mini-beasts in your garden or during your walk?

On Monday the 13th April Sikhs celebrate the festival of Vaisakhi, sometimes spelt and pronounced Baisakhi.


Every year there is a Vaisakhi parade in Leeds that comes up the Headrow and then gathers in Millennium Square (not this year). The Guru Granth Sahib is their holy book, and they treat it like a person. It rides on a lorry.


The CBeebies one has some facts and three different videos: 

Preparing for Vaisakhi


Celebrating Vaisakhi


The Vaisakhi story


The My First Festival one is well worth watching to learn about Sikhism.


Why don't you either:

Make, draw or paint the Nishan Sahib  

The Nishan Sahib is a Sikh triangular flag made of cotton or silk cloth, with a tassel at its end.



Make a paper doll and dress it up in a Sikh outfit, including a turban.


Make a story board retelling the Vaiskahi story


Design a menu for the special meal - (Langhar meal)
