Reception Class Week Beginning 31.10.22

This week, Reception have been very busy learning about the Hindu festival of light-Diwali.

The class learnt about how Hindu families from all over the world celebrate this very special festival by: coming together to dance, sing and eat, attending a special service at their temple, decorating their homes with Rangoli patterns, lighting diva lamps and drawing Mehndi patterns on their hands. The class then had a go and creating some of these things themselves.

Here are the firework displays happening in and around Milton Keynes this  November - MKFM 106.3FM - Radio Made in Milton Keynes

Remember, remember, the 5th of November,

Gunpowder, treason and plot.

I see no reason

Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.

Reception Class have also been learning about why we celebrate Bonfire Night and how to keep safe around fireworks and bonfires.

Inspired by this, the children decided to write some Bonfire Night safety posters to educate the older children. These posters have been displayed outside the classroom in the main corridor, where they can be seen and read by the whole school.

Reception also had fun creating their own fireworks art pieces, through painting, printing, drawing, collaging and making 3D models.

Some members of the class even decided to work together to construct  a model of the Houses of Parliament- what a great team effort!

If you are going to a fireworks display at the weekend, have a fantastic time!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

The Reception Team
