Early Years – Diwali Celebrations

Celebrating Diwali

Early Years were lucky to have Mrs Mahammad to teach them about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.

Many of the staff were dressed in a Sari. Mrs Mahammad explained how they were fitted and about the decoration. She bless the class with a candle and told the traditional tale of Rama and Sita.

Many thanks to Mrs Mahammad.

Early Years and KS1 Harvest Festival

Songs and Art work

Our annual Harvest assembly was well attended today. Nursery Ruby Class were able to show some of the activities we based around the story “The Little Red Hen”. We had wheat painting, growing cress and tasting different breads.

Opal and Topaz displayed some hedgehogs they had made from natural materials. Years 1 and 2 were looking at health foods and the foods that we bring to the harvest table. I particularly liked the Baked Beans!

They all sang some harvest songs about farmers work and different beans, backed with some well rehearsed actions. Of course the mandatory Dingle Dangle Scarecrow from Nursery.

Well done.

This week Nursery ventured to the dell to listen and role play the story “The Journey”.
