Class 2 have been learning about three stories from three different religions. To study these religious stories Class 2 have used a range of Art, DT, Drama and IT lessons. From these lessons the children were able to explore the stories and how we can learn about religion and from religion.
Mosque and Cathedral trip!
Class 2 had a fascinating trip to the Masjid - E - Noor Mosque and Gloucester Cathedral. The children were given a tour of the Mosque and an insight into the beliefs and customs of Muslims. They were also able to dress up in traditional Muslim clothing and explore the importance of prayer and the direction of prayer.
After a short journey in the coach Class 2 arrived at the magnificent, Gloucester Cathedral. The children were in awe at the size of the building and they were amazed to hear that it was built over one thousand years ago! Inside, the children attended a number of different workshops learning about the different aspects of the building and its importance to religion. It was also great to see so many thoughtful questions being asked and Class 2 were desperate to investigate all the nooks and grannies such a building has to offer.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the week and I am sure they will be retelling the stories once or twice over the next couple of week!
Class 2 Have been celebrating the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl by inventing their own magical chocolate!
The children came up with some very interesting ideas that Willy Wonka would have been proud of!!
