We are enjoying a very busy half term exploring our topic - Let's Celebrate!
We have been finding out about the Festival of Diwali and we had lots of fun making Rangoli patterns and Diwali cards. We watched a video of a little girl and her family preparing for Diwali and we talked as a class about special times in our families and how we prepare for them. We enjoyed watching a shadow puppet story of Rama and Sita which taught us about the meaning behind Diwali.
We were all very excited about Bonfire Night! We shared our experiences of fireworks and Bonfire celebrations and then we heard the story of Guy Fawkes. We used sparkly glitter and sticky glue to make firework pictures and we worked together to think of describing words for our fireworks and the sounds they made.
We are now very busy rehearsing for our performance of 'Wriggly Nativity'! We have learnt lots of super songs and been practising our big, loud voices on the big stage. We can't wait to show you what we have been up to! Over the next two weeks we will be exploring the Christmas Story and the meaning behind this special time of year. As part of our Understanding the World curriculum, we are spending time talking about how we prepare for special times and celebrations at home. We would love to see some photos on Tapestry of how you prepare for celebrations such as Christmas.
