Diwali - Lotus Flowers and Elephants
As part of our Faith Week focus on Hinduism, we have been looking at how Diwali is celebrated. We discussed the goddess Lakshmi, and how she is often depicted with elephants and lotus flowers. We then decorated our own!
Aardman Animations Workshop
Today, we had someone from Aardman Animations visit us and teach us how to make our own Shaun the Sheep!
We had an amazing trip to the zoo. We saw many different animals and attended a workshop (where we held a hissing cockroach, a snake and a stick insect)! See below for some photos from our day:
For the first three weeks of Term 1, our whole school are completing a mark making project which will build upon fine motor skills, creativity, team work and presentation. This project will end with a museum around the school to showcase all of the children's learning. Please come and visit on Friday September 21st!
In Maths, we are working on developing our knowledge of addition and subtraction. We have been practising using the formal methods.
