This week we have been learning all about Islam and especially the mosque. We have learnt lots of things about the mosque; what they look like, what certain features are on the outside and the inside and all the different activities that happen at the mosque.

What is 69 divided by 3?

Our poetry for this half term is the lovely topic of limericks. We have been reading and discussing a wide range of limericks to see what they all seem to have in common / follow a certain format (features).

Iron Age

This week we have been learning what it would have been like to live in the Iron Age and on a hill fort. We acted out certain activities or parts of the day from the Iron Age.

Can you figure out what some of the activities are from the pictures (quite difficult!)

What activities did they do?

How is it different from today?
