This week all the children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 took to the stage in Holy Rood Church for our Christmas Performance, telling the story of the very first Christmas - the birth of Jesus. Badger class all dressed up as donkeys. The children worked very hard learning all the songs and actions ready to perform to their parents. They all impressed everyone with their beautiful singing and excellent behaviour! Well done Badgers!
We went for a walk around Queens Park to look for signs of autumn. We found berries, fungus and lots of different leaves. We had lots of fun looking for leaves of different colours and shapes.
We have been learning about why we celebrate Bonfire Night every year. We learned that Guy Fawkes plotted to blow up the houses of parliament and kill King James 1 but luckily he was caught. We enjoyed exploring the story using toys in the construction area and making bonfire and firework pictures using different media and materials.
We have been learning about Diwali and how it is celebrated. We learnt a Diwali dance and made diva lamps and rangoli patterns.
We have enjoyed exploring our new classroom and making new friends. Take a look at some of the things we have enjoyed doing during our first weeks at school.
