This Week’s Learning
Week commencing Monday 12th November
This week we have been celebrating Diwali. The children have been learning the story of Rama and Sita and retelling using costumes and props. We made diva lamps, created mehndi patterns, used the making table to create pictures of Ravana with 10 heads as well as making samosas to eat and trying some Indian biscuits made by our very own Miss Cuvelier. Ask you children about the story, they really enjoyed acting it out and taking turns to be in the audience.
The children were very excited to find a frog in the Natural Thinker Garden too!
Next week we will be learning about positional language (on top, next to, under, beside, behind, in front) so do encourage your children to use the same language when at home.
We are also going to introducing the story of Three Little Pigs. Instead of reading the story on the carpet we will be using a ‘Talk for Writing’ approach. This means a rich and immersive experience using the characters, developing language, retelling, acting, singing, making, imaginative role play, writing and number. It’s a great opportunity for the children to internalise the story , develop new skills and have lots of fun.
