Friday 16th June 2017 - A Y2 Triple!


1. Shree Hindu Temple

We were very lucky this week to be able to visit Leicester on Monday to observe the "arti" ceremony at the Leicester Shree Hindu Temple and to be shown around to widen our understanding of the Hindu religion, as part of our studies about India.  We were made to feel extremely welcome and after all the descriptive work we have done this year where we have thought about our senses, this truly was a sensory experience with the perfumed aroma from incense, the beautiful music and singing, not to mention the array of colours before us.  A very valuable learning experience.  If you'd like to read more, take a look here:

2. On Thursday afternoon, Year 2 went across to the Stamford Welland Academy to participate in a Multi-Skills Competition.

3. On Friday, we visited Burghley House where we were able to make our own clay sculpture and have a look at all of the others that are on display in the grounds. 



And of course, we just had to sample the Garden of Surprises!


Many thanks to Stamford Young People's Charity for supporting this event.

And somewhere inbetween, we have been constructing a non-chronolgical report to document our learning about India!

Well done Year 2!  Sleep well and have a restful weekend ....  There's more excitement to follow next week!

About Me

Name: Year 3

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.

The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
