What a busy week we've had in Nursery.
We have been learning about Diwali, the festival of lights.
We listened to the story of Rama and Sita. We made masks to retell the story.
We dressed up in special clothes.
We will be making Diwali sweets later in the week to remember the gifts that Hindus give each other at this special time.
We heard how Rama and Sita used candles in little holders called Divas. We made our own divas using clay and sang a song called This Little Light of Mine while we watched Mrs Page light our candles. It was very beautiful. We knew we had to sit very still as lit candles can be dangerous, and we must NEVER light a candle ourselves.
We are playing games like eye spy in phonics, thinking about what sound our names and our friend's names begin with. Why not try to play at home with your family?
We played a fun game matching letters to those in our names.
In busy fingers we rolled the right number of play dough balls for our number then counted them, splatting each one as we went, so we knew that we had counted all the balls.
Next week is half term. After this we will continue to think about light and dark by exploring the themes of fire works and space.
Have a wonderful holiday!
