Great Fire of London Role Play

Year 2 have been acting out some scenes from The Great Fire of London. They thought about what they would be able to see, hear, fell and spell and they dashed through the crowded streets of London. This will help the children with some diary writing in English next week.

Sharing a Shabbat Meal

Year 2 celebrated the Jewish day of rest, Shabbat. They acted out a Shabbat meal.  Mum lights a candle and welcomes Shabbat with a Hebrew prayer. Dad blesses the children and then the wine with a prayer called kiddush. Everyone tasted the challah bread that Jewish families eat.

Year 2 loved their special visit from Captain Chris yesterday. He told us all about his role in the army, showed us his medals, amour and what the children loved most of all was learning how to salute! Thank you Captain Chris!
