Welcome to Autumn 2 every body- always my favourite term with so many exciting events to work with!
This week has been so busy!
We have been learning about and celebrating Diwali and Fireworks Night this week!
We learned the story of Diwali and all about Rama and Sita and why Diwali is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and even some Buddhists! Then we made our own diva lamps from clay and painted them too. We decorate Mendhi Hands and also made our own fireworks pictures.
On Friday, we even had a Diwali feast where the children (and Miss Penny and our special visitor the Executive Principal Mr Whitley) got to try some traditional Diwali celebration food- Pakoras, Bhajis and Samosas.
Its been a week for making things too- with the builders busy making our new Outdoor space, the children have been making diggers and cranes. We also worked together to put up our new storage centre for outside - the children used hand drills and screw drivers to put it up!
I am incredibly proud of the class too for their Phonics work this week- we have started 3 different Phonics groups now and every child has risen to the challenge. We even had a visitor on Thursday in to watch our amazing class in Phonics who was blown away by how hard they are working and how well they have engaged with the Read Write Inc Phonics scheme. Thank you all for your hard work at home too!
Hope you all have a lovely, safe weekend this fireworks night.
