The first week back after half term has been a busy one!! We have started our first week back learning about Diwali, light and dark. The children have been learning about what is light and dark; and its many meanings – as in a light source, space, and celebrated in festive celebrations. The children have been exploring these many meanings through making Diwali lamps and lanterns, drawing henna pattersns, retelling stories about Diwali and the festival of light (including many other stories this week too), investigating and reporting on ‘space’ artefacts, and practising letter formation throuh a range of activities. So much learning and fun has been had this week!!!! See for yourselves 🙂
In maths, we have been learning about addition through using the part-whole model. This has allowed the children to develop their understanding of addition in such a fun and meaningful way.
In literacy, we have started learning about the story ‘Whatever Next’. The children have already started loving this story; and are enjoying retelling it using the props to help!
We hope we didn’t tire them out too much with such busy learning!! Look out for our space learning coming soon.
Enjoy the fireworks and stay safe!
