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.
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.
All About Me
This Friday Early Years came dressed in an outfit that had meaning to them. After assembly Ruby, Opal and Topaz classes got together to parade their costumes and outfits for each other.
All the classes had been learning a song to perform to the others and then we all had a go at yoga!
The children looked lovely in their numerous outfits, here are just a few.
This week Nursery ventured to the dell to listen and role play the story “The Journey”.
Mrs Lawes read and helped the children use items from our story sack to listen to the story of the little boat who went on a long journey. Miss Smith sat in the boat with the children to make it move along with the character in the book.
Nursery have made a good start to the year. They have settled very quickly to the routines and have njoyed exploring their new classroom.
We have ventured into the Hall for PE and Assembly.
On Wednesday we took a trip to the dell and collected natural objects to look at in class.
Here are a few photos of the children playing and learning.
