Diwali

Happy Diwali

At the start of the week we discussed our experiences of fireworks. We discussed what sounds they make and children were encouraged to write words such as 'pop' and 'crackle' using their phonics knowledge. Later in the week we looked closely at the celebration of Diwali. We discuss similarities and differences between other festivals and looked closely at Diwali cards and decorations. The children had the opportunity to create a Diya lamp out of clay. Our key vocabulary words this week were celebration and festival.

On Wednesday we focused on Remembrance day. We watched an age appropriate video at 11 o'clock to remember the people that died in the war. We also decorated a poppy themed biscuit to take home.
