We have moved on from our Awesome Autumn topic and have dived straight into Let's Celebrate for Term 2.
We have started with two celebrations: Bonfire Night and Diwali. The children researched who celebrates Diwali and why and have then created some incredible learning. They have drawn Hindu Gods and Goddesses, created Rangoli patterns, designed and painted their own Mendhi as well as constructed temples, made up their own Diwali songs and have even written little books. he children have also enjoyed drawing Guy Fawkes, creating safety steps for Bonfire Night, designed their won fireworks and created their own number Catherine wheels,
Outdoors this week we have been learning to move like different fireworks, created chalk firework scenes and built bonfires in small teams.
Phew all in Week 1!
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at the Indian Camel Festival in Pushkar and then we will be looking at Christmas.
Keep looking at our weekly Friday letters to find out more :)
