For our RE unit 'Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?' we visited a local mosque.
We learnt about salah (five daily prayers).
The children admired the beautiful dome from inside.
We visited the large prayer hall.
It was great to enrich our knowledge on Islam and have the opportunity to ask questions.
Design and Technology
For our DT unit on Textiles, our Year 2 children designed and made their own pouch.
The children carefully cut out two templates and pinned them to the fabric.
They joined two pieces of fabric together by sewing a running stitch and decorated it.
In Year 2 we follow the 'Talk for Writing' scheme closely. For our unit on the text The Proudest Blue, the children began their writing journey by sharing and talking about their own special objects. Once introduced to the story, the children enjoyed retelling The Proudest Blue using actions and expressions. Here is a video of two of our Year 2 children doing this beautifully.
We have been sorting and ordering facts about Mary Secole and Florence Nightingale.
Art and Design
The children thoroughly enjoyed our unit on sculpture and 3D.
We learnt many clay work techniques such as score and slip and impressing.
We built up to making our final piece which was a clay house.
