Welcome to Gandhi Class!
Mohandas Gandhi was an inspiration to many people as he tried to improve conditions in India. As is shown in one famous quote, ‘Be the change you want to see happen in the world’, he encouraged people to aspire and achieve their goals through their actions.
In Gandhi class we try to live up to this by working hard and being kind to one another. We are learning to consider how our actions affect others and support one another to do our best.
We are a very active class and enjoy practical activities. We always look forward to sport. We love learning new things and discuss our ideas enthusiastically. We are enjoying all the different themes we are looking at this year. These have included looking at animals, the Stone Age and magnetism. We are having fun with our current art project on local artists and sculpture and looking forward to finding out about earthquakes and volcanoes in our next theme ‘Shake,rattle and roll”
Mohandas Gandhi is one of the most famous leaders and champions for justice in the world. He had a firm belief in non-violence and let the way for other important civil rights leaders including Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela. He is so well known that he is mostly just referred to by the single name Gandhi. He is also known as Mahatma Gandhi, which means Great Soul as well as Bapu, which means father.
Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar, India and his birthday is now a national holiday in India. He spent his life trying to improve the lives of others. Gandhi was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times.
