Welcome back after half term!
This week we have celebrated Diwali. The children have had many experiences of learning about the story of Rama and Sita, using the interactive white board, visual aids and text. We have also played with gold shimmery play dough, creating rangoli patterns independently or using pegs and boards.
We were also lucky to have three of our parents visit the Nursery this week. Mrs Kotecha very kindly spoke to the children about Navrati and Diwali, giving the children lots of opportunities to look at and touch the books, and treats she had brought in to share.
Mrs Loebinger and Mrs Passer provided interactive activities whilst reading “Room on the Broom” and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”-the children had a great experience handling the various props!
We have also learnt about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night, creating our own fireworks, discussing how to keep safe during this firework season and how to admire the wonderful colours and shapes from a good distance.
