Hi all! We have had a lovely week first week back after half term. We have started our new half termly topic of ‘Sparkle, Shine, Celebrate!’ by focusing on the book ‘Dipal’s Diwali’. We have done some brilliant activities this week including making and decorating Diva lamps, trying traditional Diwali celebration snacks, making Rangoli patterns and designing our own Mehndi. We have also been learning about Bonfire Night, the Gunpowder Plot and the significance of fireworks.
Our new sounds learnt in phonics this week have been ‘h’ and ‘b’.
Our maths focus has been investigating and comparing circles and triangles. We went on a shape hunt around school looking for all the shapes we could see in the environment.
Note: Please make sure your child is bringing warm clothing to school with them, e.g. gloves, hats and tights, as we spend a lot of time outdoors in every weather.
