Year 2 Murray – RE, History and Science.

What a great term of learning we have had. We have loved our afternoon topic lessons this term and this week we have been consolidating our learning and sharing what we have learnt in the last 6 weeks.

in History, we have been learning about the explorers Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. Here are some double page spreads sharing what we have learnt about them and how they paved the way for other explorers.

In Science, we have been learning about food chains and new vocabulary including herbivore, carnivore and omnivore. We learnt about predators and those at the top of the food chain and then looked at different habitats and where we would find the animals in the food chain.

In RE, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs Butt today to talk to us about Islam and Muslim life. We have been learning about the 5 Pillars of Islam this term and the children had retained so much knowledge and Mrs Butt was really impressed. These are the 5 pillars of Islam.
The declaration of faith (shahada)

Prayer (salah)

Giving (zakat)

Fasting (sawm)

Pilgrimage (hajj)

We were able to ask Mrs Butt some questions about each of these pillars and we then created a poster to represent these pillars and our knowledge.

Well done Year 2 for some fabulous learning this term!
Have a wonderful half term.
Miss Gedney
