Reception Class Celebrate

20th November 2015

We have been really enjoying our topic ‘Celebrations’. These past couple of weeks, we have been learning about Diwali.

We learnt that Diwali is a festival of light so we made some diva lamps using salt dough. We then painted them and added glitter!

We read the traditional Hindu story ‘Rama and Sita’ and we made puppets from the story. We also worked as a team to build the bridge from the story and act it out. Our bridge was really strong and we persevered when it got tricky.

Mr Keast has been teaching us gymnastics. We have been thinking about balances with our partners and experimenting with different ways of moving.

We had an excellent Welly Walk in the crunchy leaves. We have started to notice lots of similarities and differences between plants and flowers in our local area.
