Welcome to Class 2D.
Welcome back after the Easter holiday. It is lovely to see the children ready to learn. Our topic this half term in Dungeons and Dragons. We will be learning about castles and how they have changed through history, how to defend and attack a castle. We will be learning to be a knight and become experts in dragons. We are planning to visit Clitheroe Castle as part of our learning on 1st May. We will create a Norman keep using junk modelling and a winding mechanism. In art, we will be learning about the artist Paul Klee and creating our own piece of castle art work in the style of Klee. At the end of the half term we will be having a medieval banquet, more information to follow.
Visit to the Sikh Gurdwara
We visited the Guru Nanak Gurdwara ( Sikh temple) in Preston. We had to cover our head ,take off our shoes and wash our hands to show respect before entering the prayer hall. We learned a lot about being a Sikh, including the 5 Ks that Sikhs wear to show they are a confirmed Sikh. We saw the holy scriptures the Guru Granth Sahib. We had a snack in the free kitchen called a langar. A few lucky volunteers got to wear a real turban. Thank you so much for our warm welcome!
