A Christmas rap!
On a wet PE day, we practised our balance skills in the seated position. We had to keep our bottoms on the floor and our tummy’s tight, maintaining a straight back. We explored using 1 arm and even 1 leg to pass objects to our friends. It was tricky to balance at first and we had to work hard in a team. We had lots of fun!
The children have written some amazing pieces of poetry. Take a look below.
Diwali Day 1/11/22
Today, we learnt about Diwali. Miss Sweet read the story of Rama and Sita and we had many discussions about what many Hindus, Sikhs and some Buddhists do to celebrate the festival of light. We decided to make our very own Rangoli patterns using the colourful autumn leaves. We were so excited about this that we even chose to continue or learning at break time and made Rangoli patterns using chalk. Take a look below.....

Computing in Term 1
This term we have been learning about Internet Safety. We have learnt that we should only take photos of people if the person is happy with the photo being taken.
