Year 2 had great fun working in teams to build a mosque! We are working on the big question: Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?
We were focusing particularly on using the right words to describe some things that are important in Islam.
The children labelled the different features in their mosque.
Ask your children to tell you what they know about the symbol for Islam, minarets, domes, the prayer hall, prayer mats, the washroom, the mihrab and how mosques are decorated.

Year 2 have had a great couple of days, making and burning our Tudor houses as part of our Great Fire of London topic. We talked about why the fire spread so quickly in London, sang London's Burning and enjoyed watching (from a safe distance) as the fire spread through our houses.

Florence Nightingale Day
The children all had a lovely day learning about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We completed a variety of linked activities and much fun was had by all.

It's been a really exciting first week in Year 2. As part of our English focus on the story of Little Red Riding Hood, we have been trying to find a mystery creature spotted in the school grounds. We think it is a big, bad wolf and the children have been making posters and traps to catch the wolf.
News update: We put these traps out after school and are pleased to confirm that the wolf, who was actually really friendly and simply lost, has been caught. Thank you to all the children for their help. We will tell you all about it when you come back to school on Monday.
