Dazzling Diwali Celebrations!

Happy Diwali!

We have dazzled our teachers this week with our learning around Diwali! This week we have learnt about the Hindu festival of light. Our discussions were filled with excitement around the vibrant colours, lights and music . The children danced to traditional music and enjoyed talking through Diwali customs. The magic continued as we watched a Diwali video sent in from Anjay and his family. The video shared their experiences as a family when celebrating Diwali and the children were overjoyed! Thank you very much for your contribution to our classroom- a fantastic celebration of our family experiences.

Through the week we have explored creating Mendi patterns on hand templates, as well as Rangoli patterns with Numicon, using the bright colours and lights to welcome the Goddess Lakshmi. The children enjoyed contributing towards our reading challenge by listening to the traditional story of Rama and Sita.

In celebration of BBC Children In Need we have been set the challenge to ACT OUR AGE-100! The children have read OVER 100 books! Thank you for your contribution towards our target. Fantastic team work.

Have a restful weekend.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Bowler, Mrs Bebbington and Mrs Thombs.
