In our first week we worked on the story Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We ended the week by going round school acting out all the different places that the characters visited in the story. This really helped us when we can to write our own version of the book.
Recently, in Year 2 we discovered a space ship had crash landed in the playground. There was a alien called Eric on it and he thought he had landed in Leodis so we have spent the last few weeks proving to him this is Leeds. Crash Landing
This week in maths we have been thinking about counting in twos. We went out side on to the playground and made different number sequences together. The sequences all jumped up in twos, then we jumped along our number line counting as we went. Counting in
Today we visited Leeds Grand Mosque. We found out so many interesting things about Islam, we heard the call to prayer, saw how muslims pray and learnt all about how similar it is to Christianity and Judaism. We looked at the Quran and heard the story of how it was written. We had such a good time we couldn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the day.

While we we were there we found parts of nature and designed a tile with our partner. We then drew our tiles so we could bring them back to school and make them out of clay.

We thought about how meerkats serve each other by having a sentry who keeps watch and alerts the rest of the mob when danger is coming. We acted this out and then thought about how we serve each other in our class. Continue reading
