Welcome Back!

Newgate 1 

As we have started our new topic of Festivals and Cultural Celebrations this week we have been learning about Diwali. Diwali is the Hindu festival of light.

As a class we have looked at pictures and listened to some of the stories that are linked to this celebration. We looked at the story of Rama and Sita as well as Diya’s which are lights that are lit to show that light triumphs over darkness and good triumphs over evil. The children even made their own representation of this during our art sessions this week.

This week we have also been focusing on wellbeing. We have shared worries during our worry time and also spent time doing meditation sessions through story as well as yoga. As part of our well being week we went to Grosvenor Park on a Stickman adventure. We began our trip by looking at different signs of autumn. We then as a group completed some parachute games, which the children really enjoyed. Finally as a group we shared the stickman story. The children then collected the sticks and leaves to make their very own stickman to take home. As always the children’s behaviour was exceptional during this time outside of school and the team were bursting with pride.

Many thanks,

Miss Bowler, Mrs Thombs and Mrs Bebbington.
