On Wednesday 14th October we visited a Gurdwara. This a Sikh temple where Sikhs go to pray. However we found that anyone is welcome in a Gurdwara. We visited 2 prayer rooms and you have to take your shoes off and wash your hands when you enter these rooms. There are 6 prayer rooms in the Gurdwara. One of the prayer rooms in on the roof top and we had to walk up lots of stairs to get to it. In this prayer room there is a beautiful dome which is full of shiny and glistening tiles.
On Friday 9th October Year 2 were lucky enough to have 2 ladies from the Royal Ballet come and teach us ballet from Swan Lake. It was very enjoyable for everyone as I'm sure you will see from the photos.
On Thursday 8th October year 2 went on a trip to The Botanical Gardens to find out more about plants that grow in different climates. This linked in well to our topic of weather where we have been learning about different climate zones and continents and countries that experience different climates.
We had a workshop about plants that grow in the Amazon rain forest, and we also got to explore the tropical, sub-tropical, Mediterranean and arid greenhouses.
