World Book Day

World Book Day  1

Learning about Islam with Rehana

We had a visit from our faith friend, Rehana. She came to talk to us about her Islamic faith. We loved hearing about Rehana’s beliefs and learning about how she worships. Rehana brought some special clothes for us to try on and she showed us how Muslim people pray.

Red, White and Blue Day


The children spent the day learning about D-day. They thought about how the soldiers might have been feeling as they landed on the beaches in Normandy. They thought that they would have been very scared and nervous. The children also found out that life at home was very different in wartime too. After looking at some ration books and old meal recipes, the children made some chocolate spread that was made out of mashed potatoes, sugar and cocoa. It wasn't very nice compared to the delicious chocolate spread that they are familiar with!

In maths, we had fun measuring the height of different flowers using cubes.

Longer or shorter than 1 metre?

We enjoyed choosing a book to read from the KS1 library.

Today we looked at our friend and asked them questions to discover how we are similar or different.

The school has had a visitor! Today, the author Sarah Roberts came in to talk about her fantastic book 'Somebody Swallowed Stanley'. Her book tells the story of a plastic bag called Stanley and how he travels through the ocean. Along the way, lots of different animals swallow Stanley because they think he is a jellyfish. The story illustrates the importance of reducing the plastic waste put into the ocean. The children loved the story and learned a lot that they can use in their topic lessons.
