This week Olive Class were luck enough to receive a visitor to help us learn all about Hinduism.
We learnt about how Hindus worship, we sang a special song and we learnt more about reincarnation.
We thought of and asked our own questions:
“How do they know when the food has been blessed?” – Yma
“Why does Lord Shiva want to destroy the universe?” – Dasha
“How do the gods get all their powers?” – Jemima
“Why does the soul go into a different body?” – Mary
“Does the soul go into an animal?” – Malachijah
Can you have a go at reading these real and alien words using your phonics?
Extra phonics words on website
As you are aware the children in Year 1 will take a short phonics check this year.
Here is some more information about the phonics check as well as some tips for practising at home!
This term the children will have a set of real and alien words to practise reading for their homework each week. It is very important that your child practises sounding out and blending these words everyday so that they are confident and ready for the check!
