This week we have been learning about the Hindu Festival of Divali (the festival of light) We found out how they celebrate this festival and made our own Diva lamps. We also had a go at making our own Rangoli patterns using chalk.
In our outdoor area we have set up a new cafe. We love playing in there.
This week was Anti-bullying week. On Monday we wore odd socks to school. We talked about how it’s good to be different!
In Outdoor explorers we collected lots of leaves and made some lovely hedgehog pictures.
This half term we are doing p.e outside. We have been having fun with beanbags, throwing and catching and balancing them on our bodies.
On rememberance day this week we learnt about why remember the brave men who showed courage in the war. We showed them respect and love by being silent for 2 minutes. We also learnt about why we wear poppies on rememberance day. We watched the rememberance video on CBeebies to help us and made our own poppies.
In outdoor explorers we looked for the different colours of Autumn. We found things which were red, green, yellow and orange.
This week we made some shadow puppets in discovery time.
In guided reading we have been learning to work independently when not reading a group. All the adults are very proud of how hard we work on the jobs we are given.
We have had a great week back together. The children have settled really well and are enjoying our new topic of light and dark.
It’s lovely being back together with our friends, we have all missed each other.
During outdoor explorers we learnt all about Bonfire Night and Guy Fawkes. We thought about fireworks and how to be safe and we talked about how loud fireworks are. We realised that some animals might not like the loud noises so we decided to make special homes for them so they can hide from the noise. The field was really covered in leaves so we used the leaves to make leaf houses for the hedgehogs.
The guinea pigs came to stay with us again this week. We love when they visit.
