This week the Starfish class have continued to learn about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. We have talked about the importance of light, new beginnings, special food to share, presents, fireworks, Rangoli patterns and the story of Rama and Sita. We went out into the yard to draw our own bright, colourful Rangoli patterns with chalk and also decorated their Diva's with bright colourful paint, glitter and sequins.
Outdoor learning continues and this week the chidren learnt how to build shelters and dens using tarpaulin, pegs, sticks and rope, and had the opportunity to play and explore inside their dens. The children really enjoyed scooping up the autumnal leaves and throwing them up into the air. Please make sure that your child has enough warm and waterproof clothes every Thursday, for their outdoor learning experiences.
On Friday the children were all very excited to be wearing their spots and stripes to support Children in Need. We talked about why we were raising money for children that are less fortunate in our Praise assembly and completed lots of Pudsey colouring activities.
