Term 2 - Festivals and Celebrations

Autumn Term 2 - Festivals and Celebrations
 
This term the children will spend time exploring and talking about traditions and customs that are relevant to their family, such as birthdays, bonfire night and Christmas. We also introduce the Hindu festival of Diwali - the festival of light. Children explore this festival through learning the story and creating a dramatic shadow puppet theatre show for their friends and teachers!
 
We continue to learn phonics through Letters and Sounds, and maths through White Rose Maths.
 
Little Oaks remembered those lost and created poppy artwork with the rest of the school.
 
The class also create diwas (candle holders) from clay and learn about 2D and 3D shapes by making firework rockets! The children also spend more time in the conservation area as a bonfire night tradition - toasting marshmallows around the fire pit - yum!
 
Then the Christmas festivities began with a virtual pantomime, Christmas dinner, Christmas party and Christmas jumpers!
