I seem to say this every time but what a busy week! Thank you all for supporting anti-bullying week with odd socks on Monday and finishing off our week with such a flourish with our great friend Pudsey.
In-between we have been busy learning about different festivals and celebrations we have around the world at this dark and gloomy time of year. We have talked about the reasons we remember Bonfire Night each year with the cautionary tale of Guy Fawkes and his friends and it’s been lovely to hear from the children how much they already knew. We then have begun to discover some of the similarities between the fireworks on Bonfire Night and those used to celebrate Diwali. The children are already beginning to make the links between Diwali lights displayed in windows and the light some of us have in windows to celebrate Christmas.
And as we get forever closer to that time of year, all children now have their parts and lines (if they have a speaking role). It would be amazing if you would practice these at home. We understand they may seem a little out of context but all practicing will be incredibly useful.
A big well done to Class 4 for their wonderful assembly celebrating Diwali. The children wrote all the lines and decided what we were showing themselves!
And so, to next week. We will be looking at what happens to some animals during winter and how they manage to get through the colder, darker months. I’m not sure they hang lights in windows but we will see! In Maths, we are focusing on subtraction and symmetry, using Rangoli patterns as an influence. There will be more production practice and Class 3 will be leading our assembly on Thursday.
Many thanks as always, Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Marten
