Mosque Visit

This morning we went on a class trip to Zakaria Mosque in Bolton as part of our Religious Education learning. Our current RE topic is all about Muslims and the Muslim religion and we got to see lots of things we have been learning about!

We went into the different prayer rooms where we saw sacred objects including the Qur’an, washrooms where Muslims wash before prayers and also the library where different classes and learning takes place.

We really enjoyed our Mosque trip today and we were  able to see all the things we have been learning about in real life!

What was your favourite part of the visit 2B?

Our Geography topic this half term is all about Australia. We have been learning about the climate and how it is different to the UK. On Wednesday we used the ipads to research the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. We found out facts about the animals and plants there.

Next week we will be creating some aboriginal art work as part of this topic!

Which animals can you find in the Great Barrier Reef?

Beautiful Handwriting in 2B!

This week in year 2 we have all been trying really hard with our joined up handwriting! We have been working on an explanation text and then editing and improving for our final draft. We have been making sure our writing is neat and joined up so we can earn a pen! Lots of children have earned their pen already! I wonder who will be next?!

At Oxford Grove we all try really hard to get along and be nice with our friends. We have been thinking about how we can be kind to each other and how to help friends in need.

In class we have a new ‘good friend’ award which is given out each day to someone who has been a good friend. The good friend of the day gets to have a special chair cover for the whole day! If you get the good friend award lots of times you can get a special kindness coin from Miss Harvey.

I wonder who will win the good friend of the day next!
