We have been finding out about Muslims this week in our RE session and are beginning to recognise some religious words linked to Islam. We have been finding out about Muslim beliefs and looking at The Five Pillars of Islam. We considered that all religions have rules to live by and we thought about and represented with drawings some of the five pillars of Islam. We are enjoying finding out about other religions and beliefs this half term!
Our Charanga session saw us continuing to practice for our class assembly which is on Thursday 15th June at 2.30- please do come and join us if you can.
Also in our Charanga session we llistened and responded to Superstition by Stevie Wonder. We liked the upbeat tempo of the song, we played some rhythm games and enjoyed singing and doing some actions to The Wheels on the Bus and Baa Baa Black Sheep. We also played the glocks very well to The Big Bear Funk and shoo our egg shakers too! We got so very funky!
We enjoyed completing ‘Piece 5’ of our Jigsaw in our ‘Jigsaw’ session this week, which was focussed around ‘Falling Out and Bullying - Part 2’. Every week, as a started to our session, we enjoy a ‘Calm me’ time and this week we thought about how we can use Calm Me Time to manage our feelings. We thought about the feeling ‘angry’, and had a g at making some angry faces. We thought about whether or not there has been a time when we have felt angry and if we ever feel angry in the future; the things we could do to calm ourselves down, such as taking deep breaths and walking away. We also thought the idea of listening to calming music would help too. We are really good at practising how to deal with different emotions if we ever feel them in our lives!
Have a lovely weekend,
The Pear Class Team
