We’ve had a fantastic first half term in Year 2! Well done everyone, you have worked so hard and we have had a lot of fun together.
This week has been jam packed! We have been learning about India as part of One World Week. We started the week by locating India on the world map, identifing which countries surround it and learning about the different climates there.
Some children have shared special Indian items from home and Aanay in Year 5, taught us about traditional Indian clothing. We have also cooked onion bhajis and vegetable samosa, which were delicious. During P.E. we have learnt some Indian dance moves and played kabaddi.
Also this week, we have learnt about the River Ganges and Diwali – the festival of light. The children have sketched peacocks and made beautiful clay candle holders, which they will bring home after half term. We have enjoyed researching different Indian animals and sharing our learning with the rest of the school.
Have a wonderful half term
