The Gingerbread Man
What a busy week we had learning about The Gingerbread Man. We listened to the story and had fun retelling it - we liked saying 'run, run as fast as you can!' We even put the words in the right order and tried hard to copy them, practicing our letter formation. We also made bridges for The Gingerbread Man to cross the river. Then, one morning we came into the classroom to find the gingerbread men we were going to decorate had run away! We had to solve some clues to find them. We loved it!
As part of Black History Week we heard the story of Handa's Noisy Night. We learnt the names of lots of different animals including pangolin, porcupine, bush-baby and woodpecker.
We made African collar necklaces and we also painted some Ndebele Good Luck dolls.
This week we have learnt all about the Sikh and Hindu festival of Diwali, also called the festival of lights. We have heard the story of Rama and Sita. We made Diyas, these are usually clay oil lamps but we put a tealight in them. In our story of Rama and Sita the people lit the Diyas so that Rama and Sita could find their way home.
We made our own Indian sweets called Barfi and tried Indian food. Some of us thought it was a bit spicy!
We also made Diwali cards and tried on Indian clothing.
At Diwali people put Rangoli patterns on the floor they are made out of rice and pulses we used the coloured shape tiles we have in class.
Hindus often go to the Mandir (temple) we a saw a picture of a mandir and so some of the children tried to make one with the bricks.
The children looked amazing in their costumes and we had a super spooky day!
Our Welly Walk looking for Numbers
We had our Harvest Festival in the hall. We recited the story of the Little Red Hen to the Year 1 class. We did lots of actions.
The food we brought in was for the Foxton Centre in Preston for all the families who need food.
