In RE this term, Class 2 is learning about the Lord’s Prayer. This week, we thought about the meaning of ‘daily bread’ and discussed all of the things people need to live well. Joshua and Marwah worked particularly hard on acrostic poems that show they know the meaning of the phrase ‘daily bread’.
Very thoughtful work, well done!
Here are their poems: Thank you for
Blessings that are good.
Reading books that can be read.
Eating food for our health.
Air for us to breathe.
Delicious food for us to eat.
Thank you for
Bread for eating.
Rest to keep us healthy.
Eating food so we don’t starve.
Able to learn.
Deciding to do good choices.
If you’d like to write your own poem on the theme of ‘daily bread’ please post it in the comments section!
This week, after watching the Nativity plays by Year 5 and Nursery and Reception, Class 2 wrote letters to show how much they enjoyed the performances. The letters were really excellent, using exciting vocabulary, questions and exclamations. Several children then went to read their letters to the classes they had written to and have their questions answered.
This term in geography and history, Class 2 have been learning about mapping the world and famous explorers. As a class, we used our new knowledge to create a quiz. Test yourself here to see how much you know about world geography famous explorers throughout history!
This term in history, we have been learning about great explorers and comparing their achievements. Mariama and Ethan both thought carefully about what they knew about two of the explorers we have studied and thought about what makes them significant.
We compared Ibn Battuta, who travelled over seventy-five thousand miles through Asia and Africa in the 14th Century, and Neil Armstrong, who was the first man on the moon in 1969. They both achieved extraordinary things in very different times and places.
