Happy Diwali Everyone!
Reception celebrated Diwali by creating Rangoli Patterns by our door, using chalk and paint. We discovered that this was done as a way to welcome the God Lakshmi into buildings. It was really fun once the colours started to blend together in the rain! We also acted out the story of Rama and Sita, and made Diwali cards.
Year 1 learnt all about Diwali today. We talked about the festival of light and why diva lamps are lit. We had great fun using our creative skills to make our own diva lamps and we are looking forward to decorating them later in the week when the clay has dried.
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, Year 3 walked into a their classroom and had a ‘snowball fight’ with paper. Afterwards, they unfurled each piece of paper to see that each one represented 1000 lives during WWI. We then read In Flanders Fields before doing some independent writing inspired by some WWI photographs.
Well done to the children, who have been recognised for demonstrating our values this week. Discipline was a popular value this week.
Yesterday saw many children enjoying the Autumn weather learning outdoors; today looks like it’ll be just as bright!
