Reception explored ‘What is Christmas?’ We spoke about the Nativity and the special people in the story. The children learnt about why we give presents, why were stars important and the role of the angel. They wrote about their favourite parts of Christmas and drew pictures of the Nativity scene. The children also watched the video of their own Nativity dress rehearsal.
Today we celebrated Diwali. The children learnt about the festival of light and watched videos about how people celebrate. We explored Rangoli patterns and made our own using pasta, rice and pom-poms. We went into the hall to practise our Diwali dancing. We had a great time!
We heard the Christmas story, saw special clothing that the Vicar will wear and looked for different features around the Church. It was a great morning!
