Yoga before Quiet Time and Artwork

Thursday, November 28, 2019

We have a session of yoga stretches to calm us down before our quiet time in the afternoon.

 

 

Here is some of our children’s artwork from last week:

Baptisms and Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 28, 2019

Continuing our topic of celebrations, last week we looked at baptisms and naming ceremonies. We played games looking at all of our names and their meanings. This week we are learning about Thanksgiving. We have watched a video about why this day is celebrated in America and have brought in American things for Show and Tell.

 

Birthdays!

Continuing with our theme of Celebrations around the World, this week we have been learning about birthdays! We have played party games like musical bumps and musical statues. We have made and decorated a lovely cake and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to our Teddy Bear.

We have been learning about Bonfire Night and making firework pictures.

We also learned about Remembrance Day. The children were very proud to manage the two minutes silence.

Celebrations Around the World

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Welcome back! We hope you had a good half-term holiday. This half-term we are looking at different celebrations leading up to Christmas.

Last week we learned about Diwali. The children dressed up and tried some Bollywood dancing. We made diva lamps from saltdough and rangoli patterns from coloured rice.
