The Monkey King

This week in RE, Year 1 have been listening to the Buddhist faith story ‘The Monkey King‘.

We really enjoyed the story and how kind the Monkey King was to his followers.

We talked about how Buddhists listen to this story and it helps them to be kinder to each other just like The Monkey King was to his followers and how the King was kind to The Monkey King after he saved the monkeys.

We thought how we could be kind to each other just like the monkeys in the story.

We also talked about how Buddhists cherish this story as it is a value of their faith and one they believe represents their God.

We had chance to act out the story of ‘The Monkey King’ and enjoyed retelling each other what happened.
