Moon Class


                Teacher: Miss Hedington
             Teacher Assistant: Mrs Brophy

What a calm lovely friday afternoon we had. Firstly we learnt how to draw a house and then after we made the house out of tissue paper.

What a busy two weeks we have had. 2 girls (Aminat and Mari) wanted to learn about princesses. Before you know it nearly of all of the girls in the cohort wanted to learn about them. They made mood boards for their princess dress, crown and castle. Then they designed them and made their own princess crown and castle. Finally, they wrote about their models- what fantastic writing! Some of boys enjoyed learning about princes and their crowns and castles. They loved making castles out of the blocks.

Skyela came in and wanted to learn about weddings. She made her own dress, she designed her bridesmaid dress and made it. She made flowers and rings. We then had our own moon class wedding at the moon class church and had a wedding reception (dancing) after. CONGRATULATIONS to our brides and grooms

We went to the fire station. We got to go in a fire engine. We got to spray water using their big hose! We took loads of pictures! We loved the fire fighters because they helped us!

the fire fighters said: If you go on google and type in London fire brigade you can order a smoke alarm and they will come and fit it in your house for FREE!

We loved going on a nature hunt to learn about autumn. We found, brown, red, green, yellow and orange leaves. We found feathers, sticks and mushrooms. Thank you to the mummies and daddy who came with us. We loved exploring!

We had a girl band in moon class this week, Kylie, Skyela, Murjana, Kimberley and Salma! The dance 'Kiki do you love me' was choreographed by Kylie. Unfortunately the video wont upload.

This week we have been learning about Diwali and fireworks. 

The children have been making rangoli patterns and diva lamps out of clay.

Thankyou to Sanjyan, Vibusin and Anushs' mummies for bringing in gifts for the children and coming in to show us how to do Rangoli Patterns, they were beautiful!
