World Book Day Fun!
Have a look through some of the photos of our fabulous costumes based on 'Our favourite book character' Can you guess who the characters are from our fashion show?
This week a lovely lady called Tamsin visited us from YoYo to talk with us about Christian beliefs and share a bible story 'Zacchaeus meeting Jesus'. We then looked at the parable of 'The Good Samaritan' and took on the role of the various characters we met in the story to write about their thoughts and discuss the meaning/message behind the story about being kind to others and being a good neighbour to those who may need our help.
We then shifted our focus onto the Jewish religion, to learn about the importance of their special text, the Torah through videos and information. We really enjoyed making our own Torah complete with our own yad. Take a look at how we made them!
Fair -Trade Learning
What an exciting start to the half term - we have been exploring how we are connected to farmers in West Africa! We have learnt about where some of our food comes from and explored the different culture of countries such as Sierra Leone and Ghana.
We have discussed how we can make life fairer for everyone by choosing to buy fairtrade.
After finding out about the process of cocoa bean to chocolate bar, we compared the taste of non-Fairtrade chocolate with Fairtrade chocolate.
On Tuesday we worked in groups to compare West Africa to the UK and we began to think about Human and Physical features.
Take a look at our photos from Monday and Tuesday:
The February half-term holiday is fast approaching so we are thinking about keeping safe.
On Monday, the local PCSO's came in to talk to us about keeping safe and not talking to strangers.
Later in the week, the digital leaders from Upper Key Stage 2 led a session about 'Being Kind Online'. We listened to a story with a message, discussed the importance of being kind when online and then practised sending compliments to each other - this resulted in lots of happy children.
Thank you to the digital leaders for such a great session!
We have been enjoying studying the stories 'Icarus' and 'George and the Dragon' to complete our topic with a focus on wings.
Recently we have been focusing on using conjunctions to retell sections of 'George and the Dragon'.
The Year 2's are using checklists to really focus in on the technical features in their writing.
Take a look at our fabulous writing - we are working so hard!
We have been learning about the Islamic religion and know have knowledge about the five pillars of Islam and the month of Ramadan which finishes with the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr. The tasty coconut squares we made this week are a sweet treat Muslims enjoy during Eid celebrations. Take a look at the photographs of us making the coconut squares and find out our opinion after sampling them.
Our super stretchy, squashy, twisty and bendy experiment!
We have been testing different objects made from different materials and looking at if they can change shape by the following actions. Take a look at us exploring!
