This book is going to help to inspire us to write for the next 3 weeks!
Today we went on our first school trip in Year 2 to Hoghton Tower as the opener to our brand new topic Towers, Tunnels & Turrets. During the trip we dressed up as Knights and Princesses, had a tour of the tower where we learnt lots about it's history, went in the spooky dungeons, saw a very old wishing water well and some of us were even knighted in the banquet hall. We learnt so much ready for our new topic and had so much fun!
Today in school we celebrated Diwali! As part of our Diwali celebrations we took part in and learnt a traditional Indian dance. We used traditional Indian dance moves, which were intricate hand movements such as the dove, bee, fish and lion face. We carried out some of the dance routine on the floor as well as standing up. In the afternoon we learnt all about Diwali the ‘festival of lights’ and created our own Rangoli and Mendhi patterns. Don't forget to visit the community video page to take a look at our traditional Diwali dance!
