Diwali week

20 10 2017

This week  RD  have been learning about Diwali – the ‘festival of light’ – which is celebrated by millions of people world wide.  Sikhs and Hindus decorate their homes with candles for 5 days – celebrating the triumph of light over dark and good over evil.

In class we have made our own diva lamps, added and subtracted candles and created our own rangoli patterns. We talked about how our own celebrations and customs  differ to Diwali.

Can you see us singing a Diwali candle song? We all got a chance to be a candle – What fun!

 




Autumn Week

13 10 2017

Autumn week has involved all of the children from RD  looking closely at the changes they are seeing to the weather (it is meant to be getting colder!) and their natural environment.

We have talked about why the leaves change colour and fall off trees as well as new vocabulary such as hibernation and migration.

We have counted leaves, taken them away and even visited Grafton Square to find Autumn leaves in order to make our book marks.

They loved the crunching sound the leaves made under their feet!

Can you remember what season comes after Autumn?




Colourscape Trip

2 10 2017

We went to Colourscape at Clapham Common. As it was a lovely sunny day we could see the colours really well as we walked through the tunnels.

What colour did your cape change to when you went in the red tunnel?
