As part of our RE topic on Sikhism, we learnt about the festival of Diwali and about Rangoli patterns. The children used play dough to make their own.
Bonfire and Fun with Sparklers!
As many of our children weren't going to get to experience a bonfire this year, we decided to have one of our own, in school, at our Forest School site. We talked about Bonfire Night Safety and how important it was that we and others remember to stay as safe as possible when around fires or fireworks.
The children really enjoyed the bonfire and holding the sparklers. We talked about our senses and about what we could smell, see, hear and feel. Afterwards, some of the children built their own mini bonfires on our playground using sticks and twigs and others drew fireworks on the ground with coloured chalk. Everyone painted their own versions of either a bonfire or fireworks in the sky.
