We have been doing our Nativity this week. The children sang beautifully and performed really well

In Geography we have been looking at making maps of our local area and particularly focused on the journey we take to Bushcraft. We discussed the things we saw on the way to the woods which we would class as significant points of our local area such as the park, the crossroads, the canal, the viaduct, the rugby club, the bridge and St Steven's church. 

Bushcraft 15.11.21

Diwali 2021- the children really enjoyed learning all about Diwali 'the festival of light'. We talked about how Diwali was celebrated by people all over the world but was a particularly important festival in India. We found India on the map and talked about the similarities and difference between the culture there and ours here in England. We looked at Rangoli patterns, read the story of Rama and Sita and compared this festival to others we might have experienced. We even made our own Diya lamps out of clay. What a lovely celebration. 

Remembrance Day- the children all made their own poppies and wore them to take part in two minutes silence. We were very proud of how respectful they all were. 


The first group to go to Bushcraft had a wonderful time on Monday. We can't wait to do it all again next week!
