We enjoyed finding out about the celebration of Diwali. It was lovely to learn about a festival that some of our Coley family celebrate. We learnt the story of Rama and Sita, made rangoli patterns, created diva lamps out of clay and Mrs Pandey decorated our hands with mehndi.

When we lit our diva lights it reminded us of the story.  

We also used Diwali to inspire our writing. 

We enjoyed the story of 'Farmer Duck' by Martin Waddell and Helen Oxenbury but it was even more exciting to go and visit on the farm. We fed the chickens, rode on a tractor and learnt about different plants in the market garden. 


Here are our pictures that were inspired by our visit. 

We are enjoyed the story, 'One Snowy Night' by Nick Butterworth. We've been naming all the animals, telling the story in order and practising using our sounds to write the names of the the animals. Miss Ord-Hume has set-up a fantastic role-play area where we can act out the story and pretend to be Percy the Park Keeper. 


There are lots of other Percy the Park Keeper stories - you could find some in your local library.
