Year 1

R.E. Day -Diwali

The children learnt about the Hindu festival Diwali. They made diva lamps from clay and listened to the story of Rama and Sita. Mrs Fletcher showed us photographs and told us about when she lived in India. We danced to Indian music, made Diwali cards and did you know Diwali means ‘row of lights’?

Clever hands club!

Clever hands club joined in with lots of activities to develop their fine motor control for writing. From miniature skittles and balancing chairs to shape tracing threading and transient art. Even our snack of blueberries practised a pincer movement!
