Diwali - Multi Faith Week

 

As part of multi faith week, we learnt about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.  We read the story of Rama and Sita and made Rangoli patterns.  Some of our parents came to help us!  

Monster Dance

We have been dancing and moving to music based on our class story 'Bedtime for Monsters' by Ed Vere.  We had such fun acting out the story!  We rode on bikes, moved through mud, climbed mountains and walked through a spikey forest.  We did most of this with our tongues hanging out because we were hungry monsters!

Something strange in Nursia Class

 

When we arrived at school today we found somme foot prints.  We were very excited and looked to see where they went.  We looked at them closely to find any clues of who might have left them!

 

Road Saftey

 

Today we had a road saftey workshop.  We learnt about how to keep safe when crossing a road.  We learnt the code - Think, stop, look, listen and hold hands.  

Five senses investigation

 

We have been learning about our five senses.  We went on a walk to use our sense of sight and hearing.  We drew pictures to record our findings.

Butter Making

 

We have been learning about where our food comes fr om.  We talked about the types of food a cow gives us e.g. milk, cream, butter and meat.  We made our own butter by shaking double cream.  We then used our 5 senses when making and eating some toast!  Yummy!

Wind, wind and more wind!

 

Storm Ali arrived.  Trees were blown over and leaves were flying in the air.  We decided to make wind blowers.  We used tape, string and sticks.  Great fun!

Nursia Baptism

In Nursia Class, we try and base our learning around the children's interests.  Some of the children began to plan a wedding.  The news spread across the class and soon all the children wanted to take part.  Mrs Stroud and I helped the children to make a list of all the things they needed to do to prepare.  We spent the next couple of days resourcing our props and planning our speeches!  We even invited our new Principal!  All the children had a wonderful time and the wedding was a great success

Today we met Warwick Bear!  He told us how to keep safe when we are near roads.  We have to Think, Stop, Look and Listen.

 

We have been to the cinema to watch 'Despicable Me 3'.  We had great fun and loved going on a coach. 

In the moment...

 

The children wanted to play shops.  They set up their own shop and decorated it with string.  We then decided to make our shop even better!  The children wrote their own labels using their phonetic knowledge. Check out our shop!!!!

We went hunting for sticks in our forest area.  We have been thinking about all the games and activities we can play with sticks based on our class story 'Stanley's Stick' by J Hegley.

We're going on a stick hunt...

Power Week - Diwali Making rangoli patterns

 

Pumpkin Soup Making

 

Ivy's family donated five pumpkins to Nursia Class.  We decided to make pumpkin soup!  We cut open the pumpkins and found lots of seeds and stringy bits.  We cut up the pumpkins and looked closely at the other ingredients we needed to make the soup - seasoning, potatoes and cream.  We loved eating the soup. Delicious!

Harvest Time - Butter Making

 

The children were really interested in learning about where their food comes from.  They asked about milk and cheese, so we learnt about how farmers milk cows.  Holly asked where butter came from and how it was made.  So, the next day we made our own butter from shaking cream.  We used it to make our own snack of toast, butter and jam.  Yummy!

We met our prayer friends from Chad class. We were so excited!
