    Doves have been fortunate enough to visit the mosque recently and have been learning more this week about the features of a mosque. The children have learnt a lot about Islam and have been enjoying gaining knowledge about another world religion. During our RE lessons, the children have been learning about how a mosque is decorated and that human and animal imagery are not allowed in a mosque, so patterns and shapes are used instead. The children have also been learning about prayer and were able to observe a prayer being carried out when we arrived at the mosque.

    This week has been another busy week for Doves class. 

    On Tuesday, we celebrated Safer Internet Day by looking at the theme of 'Positive Influence'. The children looked at different scenarios and had some wonderful conversations about whether this is considered a positive influence, a negative influence or whether it depended on the situation. The discussions were fantastic to listen to.

    Next week is assessment week so we are looking forward to seeing how much they have all learnt and celebrating their success with them!
