Faith Week Letters
19 June 2019

Class 3 have been writing to pupils in a London School where many of the children are Muslim. They wrote some interesting questions such as, “What clothing do you wear? What traditions do you have? What is your prayer space like?” We look forward to receiving letters back so that we can learn more about what it is like to be a Muslim.

West Country Music Visit

Mrs English from West Country Music came into school today to show the children in Key Stage 2 the range of instruments they could learn in the Autumn Term such as the Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Cornet and Trombone.

She spoke to the children about how each of the instruments makes their sound and some of us even got a chance to have a go!

Faith Week
13 June 2019

 

 

On Monday, we started our Faith week on Islam by welcoming Naomi to our school. She talked to the children about her beliefs and how she lives her life as a Muslim.

The children in Class One listened to some Islamic stories and explored their teachings, the children in Class Two found out about Muhammed, the Qur’an and the importance of prayer and Class Three discovered what it was like being a Muslim today. All the children showed great interest, learnt lots of new facts about Islam and identified the links between Christianity and Islam.

The children also enjoyed tasting some traditional food that Muslims like to eat.

 

Visit to the Heath
12 June 2019

The Pebblebed Heath Conservation Trust gave Class 3 some very enjoyable activities and lots of information when we visited Woodbury Common and the Iron Age Hill Fort. The day was made up of den building, a walk around the fort, learning about wildlife and heath conservation. The children enjoyed a trailer ride then took turns in using the power hose. They got just a tiny bit wet!
