Learning about Eid and other special times. 

We have been so lucky this week to have Zimal's mummy come into school to help us to find out more about the Muslim religion and culture.    We loved looking at and trying on some of the beautiful clothes worn at special times such as the festival of Eid and family weddings.  

We have been learning about mehndi patterns and were really lucky that Zimal's mummy was willing to come into school and bring her henna stick so that she could give us some beautiful henna mehndi patterns. 

We really enjoyed the delicious food that Zimal's mummy had cooked and brought in for us to share.

Remembrance Day


We have been learning about 'celebrations' in Early Years, we talked about our experiences of Bonfire Night, had birthday parties for a couple of very lucky soft toys, enjoyed discovering about Diwali, and prepared for Christmas by making cards, decorated our tree and learned some Christmas songs.  


Our Nursery children liked looking at and talking about the Mendhi patterns and had a go at decorating some hands themselves.

In reception, the children  enjoyed learning about Diwali, the festival of light.  They looked at the story of Rama and Sita and then made their own diva lamps. They sculpted the lamps using clay and moulded them with our fingers and then decorated them. 

Birthdays were something the nursery children liked to talk about when they were thinking about celebrations.   The children talked about their own experiences.
