Ibn Salamah

Welcome back!

We have been so busy in Ibn Salamah, we would like to show you what we have done.

Kings and Queens Super Learning Day

Year 1 celebrated their learning in History by having a ‘Kings and Queens’ Super Learning Day. Each class visited a castle, wrote to the queen, made a crown, sat in her throne and made her favourite cucumber sandwiches. In the afternoon we all attended a ‘Royal Banquet’ in the palace and enjoyed afternoon tea. The images really capture the excitement and magic of the day.

Clitheroe Castle

In January we visited a local castle in Clitheroe. We have been learning about Kings and Queens so it was thoroughly enjoyable to go and see how castles were built and what they were used for. We got to design our own armour, went inside the Keep and even defended our territory at the top of the hill.

Here are just a few of the pictures that captured a fantastic day.

Our Jewish visitor

We were honoured to welcome a lovely Jewish lady to talk to us about Shabbat. We loved hearing her stories and learning more about her faith. We got to see and feel some of her religious artefacts which really helped us understand more about the Shabbat preparations.
