RE: Inspirational Writing
Year 2 had a fantastic trip to London where we went on the London Eye and enjoyed a cruise down the River Thames. We saw lots of the famous landmarks that we had learnt about throughout our topic.
Our topic for autumn 2 is ‘India’. We have been researching and recording facts about India to create our own non-fiction book. We have also planned and created a diva lamp as well as learning how to sketch famous Indian landmarks. We had a visit from Nabhi who is from a local temple. As part of our RE learning, he taught us about the story of Rama and Sita.
As part of our topic ‘India’, we had a day at school dedicated to India. Everyone dressed up in bright, colourful clothing and we took part in lots of activities. We started the day by helping to cook vegetable curry, potato curry, peas pilau rice, mango lassi, sweet lassi and coconut squares. We had just one afternoon to learn an Indian dance ready to perform for our adults. At the end of the day we sang a song to our adults that we have been learning in music. We also performed the dance and then we all got to eat the delicious food we had made.
