I get the feeling that the boys would rather be on the field doing PE with year 6 than playing on their own playground.
This week we have been learning about the names and properties of shapes.
The 3D shapes that we learn about in Year 2 are triangles, circles, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons.
We have been looking at the edges, faces and vertices.
We have learnt about irregular shapes.
We have been learning about the Buddist views and beliefs. We found it very interesting.
Who was Siddhartha Gautama?
Why is Siddhartha Gautama so important to Buddhists?
Siddhartha Gautama found the path to Enlightenment. By doing so he was led from the pain of suffering and rebirth towards the path of Enlightenment and became known as the Buddha or “awakened one”.
Siddharta Gautama is known as the Buddha.
He was born around the year 580 BCE in the village of Lumbini in Nepal. He was born into a royal family and for many years lived with in the palace walls away from the sufferings of life; sufferings such as sickness, age, and death. He did not know what they were.
One day, after growing-up, marrying and having a child, Siddhartha went outside the royal palace and saw, each for the first time, an old man, a sick man, and a corpse. He was worried by what he saw. He learned that sickness, age, and death were the inevitable fate of human beings â€” a fate no-one could avoid.
