Happy Diwali !

D 1 D2

What a lovely week we’ve had celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali.

Comets have made Diva lamps to take home and Mars have decorated Rangoli patterns using a range of media. We have been getting creative with some beautiful, new, glittery Playdough.



On Friday we had a great time dressing up as ‘People Who Inspire Us’, in aid of Children in Need. Check out our fun photos!

Can you spot ‘my Nana, a vet, a firefighter and my Grandad’ in Mars.?  On Comet carpet can you see a ‘Doctor and Spiderman’?

I wonder if anyone can tell us who they dressed up as for Children in Need and why they chose that person?

It’s oh so quiet… Or is it?

This week we have been using our ears.

  • We have listened to a noisy story ‘Peace at Last’
  • The Comets have been listening for their names and following instructions
  • We have thought about the noises that fireworks make and created some firework pictures using paint
  • Finally we put on our coats and went out and about on a sound walk to see what sounds we could hear around our school.

Here are the Comets out on their sound walk. We went outside on the playground and around school.

outShhh we’re listening very carefully!

And here are some of the photographs that Mars took on their sound walk.

Mars, can you remember what noises they made?

Comets, can you have a guess what noises they made?
