Festivals and Celebrations
We have all worked extremely hard and have enjoyed learning about Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas Around the World.
*Bonfire Night - We created lots of firework pictures using a range of media, such as paint, string and chalk. We even used the 'splat tool' on the computer!
*Diwali - We all showed an interest in learning about Diwali, the festival of light. We enjoyed listening to and acting out the story of Rama and Sita. In Art we made our own Diva Lamp, which we painted and decorated with jewels.
*Christmas - The lead up to Christmas was RKM's most favourite part of the term, as we were all very excited about Santa, who was hopefully coming to visit all of us who had been good. We all enjoyed our Christmas crafts and activities. We particulary enjoyed making our Christmas card, using coloured straws. We had to put the straws in the correct order, using the numbered pots to help us. We also enjoyed decorating an ice cream cone with green icing and then decorating it with various treats such as smarties and lemon sherbet, so that it looked like a Christmas tree. The children were all stars in our Christmas performane and all shone brightly!
Wow! What a busy, but fun half term!
