As part of our RE studies we have been looking at the Hindu festival of light called Diwali. We read all about Rama and Sita and their journey home using light. We spent time undertaking activites to teach us more about this religious festival.
We drew Rangoli patterns, made sweet treats, learnt Diwali dance, hand painted in Hindu style and text mapped the story of Rama and Sita. We linked our Maths and English work with Diwali too!
The Evil Pea has been up to his naughty tricks again.....
Year R found some vegetables had been trapped by the evil pea. They worked fast to relese them
How are people who help us heroes? This is the big question that Year R are looking to answer.
Our first job was to dress up as a superhero for the day. We had a variety of superheroes including Captain America, Spiderman and Wonder Woman. We also had some children dressed up as doctors and nurses. Are they superheroes? Watch this blog to find out!
Captain Terrific visited us with a story and a question to research about Heroes. We are learning our version of the story Supertato by Sue Hendra. Ask your child to tell you all about the "Evil Pea". They are learning to orally retell the story with some fantastic actions.

The big day finally arrived for us to perform our nativity play to all our grown ups. The children all worked really hard to learn the songs and each and everyone of them was a superstar on the day. If you came along we really hope you enjoyed it.
Year R enjoyed visiting the church for our annual Christingle service. They sang along to 'Love shine a light' and listened really carefully to Father Jonathon who taught them all about what each part of a Christingle represents.
Year R had a great time making Christmas decorations with their grown ups. They made snowmen baubles and decorated Christmas trees.
A huge well done to Roxie-Lou who was this week's very important person. Roxie-Lou was chosen for impressing her teachers on a daily basis with her reading and writing. Roxie also received a special well done for her extra neat handwriting. Keep up the good work Roxie!
We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated a shoe box for our shoe box appeal. We collected over 30 altogether. The 'Link Team' were thrilled when they came to collect them and I'm sure the families receiving them in Romania will will appreciate your kindness and generosity. Thank you.
The children in Year R were very excited to receive some letters in the post this week. They were even more excited to find out how far their '60th birthday celebration' balloons had travelled.
Act of Kindness
As part of our 60th birthday celebrations, Year R decided to surprise residents at a local care home with some treats. They enjoyed handing out flowers and cakes and talking to the residents. They even sang some songs which the residents enjoyed joining in with.
Why not help your child master their handwriting at home?
Year R have had a super start to the year. We have been learning all about people who help us. We have had a superhero day and have had visits from real life heroes including the police and the fire brigade! We even got to go inside the fire engine!
All things Halloween!
Year R have loved celebrating Halloween this week! We have been counting spooky items, ordering pumpkins by size, making spooky crafts and we even had a Halloween party!
Read read read!
Thankyou to all the parents who attended the reading workshop today. The children loved playing reading games with you. Key words will be going home next week so you can play these at home too! And remember.....
Year R have worked really hard to solve all the problems they have received from the Matrix this week! We have had a paper chain competition, made shape heroes and have been on a maths hunt around the school! We worked so well as a team!
