The Turtles had a great time performing our Christmas play 'Born in Bethlehem' to our adults.
The children enjoyed their forest school session making natural resource hedgehog decorations.
Starfish had an excellent time exploring Arlington Court this week. They searched for the special Christmas trees, listened to birds singing and had great fun playing in the yellow leaves!
The children ventured around the magical house and The Coach House, learning all about the transport and way of life from many years ago. Starfish loved exploring the house and all the artefacts that were on display especially the ships or ‘pirate ships’ as they would tell me!
In maths, we have been learning to find, subitise and represent the numbers 4 and 5. We have counted objects in our classroom, arranged them in different ways and discussed how we did it.
The children had made their own Christmas tree for Arlington Court to help celebrate 200 years of the house being built. We went on a trip to see our tree as part of the trail, see the beautiful carriages of the carriage museum and to look around the highly decorated house.
During outdoor learning, the children enjoyed learning about hedgehogs and made their own using playdough, sticks and stones.
This week the Turtles learnt about Diwali. We first read the story of Rama and Sita. We then drew around our hands and decorated them in mehndi patterns and also made diva lamps out of model magic.
As a school we celebrated Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. In Jellyfish class we moulded and decorated our own Diva lamps using model magic, drew around our hands for mehndi patterns and learnt the story of Rama and Sita.
We looked at Remembrance day and why it is an important day. We then made our own poppies using a paper plate, some paint and card.
