This term our theme was ‘Let’s Celebrate!’ where we have been comparing and contrasting festivals and celebrations from around the world with those that we celebrate ourselves. It has been such a busy time!
In the first week we found out about the celebration of Diwali enjoyed by people of the Hindu and Sikh faiths. The story of Rama and Sita gave an insight into this celebration and we had a go at doing some traditional Indian stick dancing before using our artistic skills to create Diva pots.
Our role play area has been transformed into a Post Office that has helped us to develop our mark making, writing and letter writing skills as well as our imaginative and speaking and listening skills! We walked up to the village Post Office for some inspiration! Whilst playing in there we are starting to develop our counting skills, measuring both by weight and size, using money in real life contexts as well as helping us develop a range of social communication and imaginative skills.
