Diwali

We have been learning about the story of Diwali and Diwali celebrations as part of our new topic ‘Winter Festivals’. We created some wonderful Rangoli patterns using rice and chalk and thought carefully about a Mendhi pattern design for our hand prints. We drew these on our hand outline as well as creating a clay model of a hand.

We really enjoyed trying some traditional Indian food and even learning some traditional Indian dances.

 

People Who Help Us…

We have been busy learning about how different people help us. We were very fortunate to have some visitors come in to see us. They taught us all about how they help others. Finch class turned their role play area into a hospital. Wren class turned their role play area into a police station.

Welcome to Reception!

We have been having lots of fun settling into our new reception classes!
