If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Diwali 2023

Welcome back to our class blog!

We have had a very exciting two weeks in Reception!

Last week's theme was 'Fireworks' and this week's theme has been 'Diwali'.

In Literacy last week we have read 'Sparks in the sky' and the children used their phonics to describe some of the sounds fireworks make. This week we have read the story of Rama and Sita. The children have enjoyed acting out the story and using their phonics to describe the characters.

We have continued with our phonics teaching. The children are working hard and grasping the sounds. Please practise with your children at home.

In Maths we have started to explore classification. The children understand that classification is when we sort things into groups. They have enjoyed organising various things from around the classroom into groups.

In RE last week we responded to our learning in our 'Welcome' topic and this week we have explored the Hindu celebration Diwali.

We have ended the week with a very special food tasting afternoon which the children particularly enjoyed!

Please continue to read with your children at home. Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning.

Please make sure all belongings are clearly named.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
