In RE this term we are learning about places that are special to us. We started off by exploring our school grounds to find special places in our school. We found the library, the MUGA, our huge school field, the sensory garden, the trim trail and the Year 1 outside area. We will be finding out about different places of worship and who they are special to over the next few weeks.
Guru Nanak's birthday.
We learnt about Guru Nanak and how special he is to Sikhs. We had two visitors from year 5 who came to talk to us about their religion which was really lovely. The children listened so respectfully and asked some fantastic questions! It was great to share our experiences with children from another year group and learn together.
We had lots of fun celebrating Diwali! We made sparkly divas, danced to some bhangra music, listened to some stories and did lots of exciting arts and crafts activities throughout the day! We had a great time!
Our topic for Autumn is 'People Who Help Us'.
As a hook to our topic learning, we were visited by 2 local police officers who very kindly took the time out of their busy schedule to come and teach us about their job.
They talked to us in the hall and showed us their uniforms. Some of us got to try on their hats, jackets and helmets! They were a little bit too big but we loved it. We had a go at speaking into the real radios and got the chance to ask lots of questions.
We learned what they wear and why, we learned what vehicles they might travel in and we got to see them drive their van before we all had a turn at getting inside!
Thank you so much to the police for coming today! We had an amazing time.
Here are some pictures of the special day.
