We started Term 2 with lots of smiles and happy faces. Everybody joined in our circle time and we shared some of our half term holiday news with the class. Freddie had been to Turkey, Carmen had done lots of playing, Betsy had been to see her Dad and Miss Bilton had been on a tour of Manchester United's football ground Old Trafford. We were all feeling refreshed. During the morning we did an independent write and celebrated our learning- some children are beginning to write in paragraphs and use exclamation marks.
During the afternoon we discussed, celebrated and joined in activities all related to the Hindu festival of Diwali. This is a festival of lights and Hindus celebrate this every year during the Autumn season. We made lots of rangoli patterns, re told the story and acted it out. What a busy first day back we all had!
