On Friday 30th November we had Grandparent's afternoon. In our classes we read a story together and then the children shared a book with their grandparents. Then it was onto decorating baubles to sell at the Christmas Fair. We had lots of fun and we hope that the grandparents did too!
We learnt all about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. We made Diya lamps and rangoli patterns and Avneesh's Mum came to talk to us about how their family celebrates.
For anti-bullying week we read the story The Ugly Duckling. We talked about the ducks being mean to the ugly duckling and how it made him feel. We went for a walk to Shaftsbury Lake to see the ducks, swans and geese. We also had a visit from Mr Boateng during anti-bullying week. He is a policeman and talked to us about being kind to each other and saying nice things.
Here is some of the writing that we did about the sounds that fireworks make. We enjoyed watching videos of fireworks displays and sharing our own experiences of watching fireworks.
Here we are telling the story of Percy the Park Keeper After The Storm in the Woodland area. We all made the storm together first of all and then we pretended to be the animals building a new house together. Afterwards we went to see the two lovely Oak trees on our field and managed to find a couple of acorns that the squirrels hadn't eaten to have a look at.
We all went out on a beautifully sunny day to see if we could spot signs of Autumn. We found berries, apples, lots of different coloured leaves and helicopter seeds from the sycamore tree. We had great fun spinning them! We also found enough leaves on the floor to crunch and scrunch through. We collected twigs and pine cones to play with in our out door area.
Here are some photos of us settling in. We have had a good time getting to know each other and we are all getting used to school.
