Week beginning 16th November
This week we have had a wonderful time learning about and celebrating Diwali. We have made rangoli patterns using rice, cards and diva lamps. We made our own chapatis which were delicious and we tasted some indian sweets. On Wednesday we had our own Diwali party and we danced in the hall.
As part of our number work this week we have learnt about patterns. We have explored our environment to see where we can find them and we have made our own patterns in our learning. At home you could see what patterns you can see around your house.
Week beginning 9th November
This week we have been learning about Autumn. We have learnt that some animals hibernate in the winter and that in the autumn they collect leaves and twigs to make nests and homes to live in. We have made nests and dens for animals in our tuff tray. We have also used leaves to make tree pictures and explored using autumn colours to paint a range of pictures.
We have celebrated Children in Need by wearing our pyjamas to school on Friday. We had lots of fun dancing, just like Pudsey did in the story we shared. In the afternoon we had a party to celebrate with those children who had a birthday in September, October and so far in November. We are looking forward to celebrating more birthdays at the end of November. We had lots of fun.
Week beginning 2nd November
We have a wonderful start to our new half term. This week we have been exploring fireworks and learning about Bonfire Night. We have made rockets and sparklers and we have explored making fireworks in the water tray. We learnt about the things we see on Bonfire Night and learnt lots of new words to describe the sight and sound of fireworks. We also made chocolate apples - they were delicious!
