We have had a great couple of weeks thinking about Christmas and having some fun making lots of different things. We have written letters to Santa, made decorations, painted calendars and made Christmas cards. We also had a brilliant time at the Christmas dinner and at our party! Apologies for all the food photos - it was the only time we could keep them still long enough to get a good one!
We are so proud of all your children have accomplished this term! We hope you have some lovely family time over the holidays and look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
Benjamin the Elf has come to stay with us until Christmas but we have noticed that over night he often gets up to mischief! He began calmly with a leisurely bath but has since then had a run in with our dinosaurs and got trapped in our post box!
Last week we learnt all about Diwali and how it is celebrated. We read the story of Rama and Sita and then made our own Diya lamps with clay. This week, we painted and decorated them and we are very excited to show you!
This week we learnt all about Bonfire Night and fireworks. We read the story The Fizz Buzz and thought about the different noises that fireworks make. We explored the colours and patterns in fireworks using chalk, splatter painting and glitter. Then we drew our own rocket and had a go at copying some of the letters to make our firework sounds such as 'fizz', 'pop', 'bang' or 'hiss'.
This week we have enjoyed creating our own spells and potions. We have drawn the ingredients, counted them out carefully, played in our potion shop and even made our own fizzing potions!
