Over the last two weeks in RE we have looked at other faiths and focused on Islam. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs Khanum to help discuss the mosque and the features. We explored the different features within a mosque and what they are for. We then explored what happens inside a mosque and focused on the performing of Wudu.
Who can comment with an explanation of what this is?
In English this week we explored poetry. We read ‘The Sound Collector’ by Roger McGough. The poem is all about a stranger taking away all sounds. So we had our own lesson tasting different foods and thinking of ways to describe it to write our own taste collector poem. For example, ‘The juicy apple slice’, ‘The creamy chocolate brioche’. We then went on our own sound hunt around school to gather sounds to use in our own sound collector poem.
We ended our History topic by designing and making our own Roman shields. The children had a great time decorating with paint and worked well helping each other.
Well done to all the children who took part in the swimming gala trials today!
I hope you all have a wonderful half term.
Relax, play, sing, dance, shout and make sure you all have fun!!

PS: If you want to make something for our new topic ‘Gods and Mortals’ a copy of the art examples from the letter have been posted below.
