This half term we have been looking at celebrations in Squirrel Class. We started by looking at fireworks. We had lots of fun making fireworks, creating a firework dance and talking about sounds that fireworks make.
Next we learnt about Diwali. Mrs Das, one of our lunchtime supervisors, came in and shared with us how she celebrates Diwali. In class we made Rangoli patterns, Diwali cards for our friends and one of the children shared with us how he celebrated Diwali. We enjoyed seeing the decorations his family put up and the special clothes they wore.
Maths week was very exciting as we were party planners and each day we received a clue on a puzzle piece that we had to solve.
In maths we have begun to look at adding and subtracting. We have done lots of practical addition and subtraction and even used subtraction to help the Jolly Postman deliver his parcels.
In phonics we have finished phase 3 sounds and have been learning lots of new tricky words. We have been using these new sounds and words in our writing. In January we are looking forward to starting Phase 4 phonics.
Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
