In line with government guidance, from September we will be welcoming all registered pupils to our schools.

Autumn 2 -2019

At the end of the half term holiday was the Hindu festival of Diwali.
The children heard about the story of Diwali - Rama and Sita return home after fighting the 10-headed demon Ravana, their way lit by divas the small lamp that gives its name to the festival.
In class we all made divas.
And Daya came for the day to talk to us all about Diwali, Hinduism and traditional Indian food, dress and dancing.
It was a very exciting day!
And it tied in well with our examination of Bonfire Night and fireworks.
We made flick paintings which we covered with glitter to sparkle in the night.
It has been a half term of festivals and celebrations.
We made Christingles in the class then all went to church for the Christingle Service. The children were amazingly well behaved throughout.
We have talked about, and had many stories about, Christmas in December. We spent a long time talking about THE Christmas story as well as performing our version of The Nativity to parents, family members and the whole school. The children all did an amazing job.
Christmas dinner just before the Nativity performance was great fun!
Everyone enjoyed wearing their Christmas jumpers, too.
They also all enjoyed our party day. Dancing in the morning - feasting in the afternoon! Thank you all for the generous donations to share amongst all of Early Years.
As well as all our Festival Fun we also looked at details of out topic Light and Dark.
Children drew sunset and sunrise pictures, some of which are on the wall in the classroom.
They all made a shadow puppet and investigated how shadows are made. This, albeit briefly, even happened outside as the sun actually came out for a bit!
Finally, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
