This week we have been learning all about Diwali. We talked about how people celebrate Diwali and how they prepare for their celebrations. We also looked at the story of Rama and Sita and why Diwali is celebrated. We have worked with Miss Pickering and Miss Munro to talk about the different celebrations that we celebrate in our families, we have also made diva lamps and Rangoli patterns.
In literacy this week we have been labelling pictures related to Diwali. The children have used their phonic knowledge to listen for sounds in words such as ‘diva lamp’ ‘Rangoli’ and ‘firework’.
In Maths this week we have been recapping numbers 4 and 5. We have looked at how we make these numbers, doubling and sharing these numbers and shapes relating to the numbers. We have had discussions in small groups about objects and the number they relate to, realising that there is more than one right answer.
