Library Visit 

This term we have enjoyed a trip to the library. We found out how the books are organised, how we can join the library and had a story told to us (which we really enjoyed). Afterwards, we got to choose some books that we would like to read. An enjoyable afternoon was had by all! 


Florence Nightingale - Tullie House

We went to Tullie House to find out some more about Florence Nightingale. We looked at a range of artefacts, role played what it would have been like in the Crimean war - dressing up as nurses and soldiers and then interviewed 'Florence Nightingale.' Back at school, we found out about another nurse called Mary Seacole. We have been comparing and contrasting the two nurses. 


In RE we have been learning about the faith - Judaism. We found out about Shabbat and looked at the meal that the Jewish people would enjoy on this day of rest. We then tried some grape juice and challah bread. The children were able to see many similarities with the Catholic faith. These included the Creation story and the story of Moses receiving the Ten Commandments. 

Shabbat Shalom
