Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term break!
This week, Reception have been learning all about the Hindu Festival of Lights, Diwali.
They learnt about how Hindu families prepare for this special celebration and why they celebrate it. The children then had fun making Diva lamps, Rangoli patterns, Diwali cards and trying on traditional clothing.
During the latter part of the week, Reception learnt about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot and why we celebrate Bonfire Night. They also learnt the Firework Code and made their own firework safety posters. The children also thought about the things they would need to host a firework party- some children even used their phonic knowledge independently to write a list! They also made their own fireworks from junk modelling material.
It was lovely to see so many of you during the parent consultations this week. A summary of the conversation will be in your child’s book bag on Monday. Thank you for your continued support!
Wishing you all a nice weekend,
The Early Years Team
