Poplar classDSC00341 visited the Forum on 8th November to learn about women’s role in the First World War.  What a fantastic, inspiring trip we had.  We learnt about all the different roles that women took on during the war when the men were fighting and acted out scenes of casualty – spot the severed arm – and drama sessions bringing a poem to life.  A great learning experience leading us into our spring learning on World War Two.

Harvest Festival

We have been learning about how Christians and Hindus celebrate harvest festivals.  Using seasonal apples we made a variety of apple dishes and later we made a traditional Hindu dish, called Pumpkin Halwa, to celebrate the Hindu festival Vaisakhi.  We compared and contrasted both festivals and identified similarities and differences.
