This week Reception Elm celebrated DIWALI the festival of light. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and we explored loose parts to create our own rangoli mats. We talked about the things that make Diwali special, such as, fireworks, lights, special family time and new beginnings.
We made Diwali cards, danced to Bollywood music and we created beautiful diva lamps. We had a wonderful time at our Diwali party and on Friday we lit our diva lamps and took them home.
For Knowledge and understanding of the world - we talked about looking after birds in the winter and we made our own bird feeders using the apples from our tree. We looked at different birds around the world such as tropical birds and then birds in our garden.
In Maths - we have been measuring our shoes with cubes and comparing different sizes, this was good FUN and enjoyed by all. Next week - we will continue to practice our tricky words, we, she, be, me, he and we will use these words in our writing.
