It’s been a very busy few weeks and every time I’ve sat down to do this blog I seem to have got sidetracked as we have been doing so many exciting things. Hopefully the children have been talking to you about what we have been up to.

Last week we completed learning about Diwali including making choc coco balls as our Indian sweets, everyone really enjoyed making them even if it was rather messy. Los of children enjoyed tasting them as well as eating some Indian food. We have been very impressed with how much the lions and tigers have been able to tell us about Diwali.

We have also been talking about remembrance and looking at poppies. This resulted in some amazing observational drawings from the children as well as lots of discussion.

Finally we have been learning about toys as well as looking at money for our toy shop. Children have been counting coins as well as matching the coins, all the 1p together, all the 2ps etc.

Looking forward to next week when we hopefully have some surprise visitors for the children on Wenesday (check the news letter for your info but please remember it is a surprise for the lions and tigers) and our big write day on Tuesday.

Diwali dance

Today we had a visit from a dancer called Andrew. He told the children the Diwali story and then we used dance moves to retell the story. We learnt some traditional Indian hasta dance moves, I wonder if they are able to share any with you.

A wonderful first week of our new half term. We have begun learning about Diwali as well as discussing bonfire and firework safety, the children had lots of wonderful ideas and i am enjoying reading your comments on our firework blog.

In maths we have been making patterns and sorting objects as well as looking at Rangoli patterns and creating our own.

Many Lions and Tigers went to their first school disco and enjoyed dressing up.

On Friday we were thrilled to welcome families in to work on our belonging activities.

Miss Lucas, Mrs Roys, Miss Gill, Miss Green and I are really looking forward to Monday when the Lions and Tigers will be doing some Diwali dancing, we will plan to tweet and blog about it.
