AUTUMN TERM 2
Please click on the link for the Homework Grid for Autumn 2
This week we have read the story of Rama and Sita and learned about Diwali. We learned that the candles lit on Diwali symbolise the triumph of good over evil. You can watch a version of the story here.
Diwali is celebrated by people who follow the Hindi religion and they light candles in small pots called divas to remember the story. We each made a diva and on Friday we enjoyed seeing the candles. It was very atmospheric.
We learnt that there is another festival in India at this time of year for Sikhs. It is very similar to Diwali and it is called Bandi Chhor Divas
You can watch this video to find out more.
Of course it is fireworks night on Friday and Saturday. I hope you and your families enjoy. Please stay safe.
AUTUMN Term 1
The first half of the Autumn Term has flown by, and we have all had lots of fun.
Please read the Newsletter for more details and to find out what’s coming up in the next half term.
We have read lots of stories that have linked with our learning. Here is a selection of videos of some of the stories.
Have a great half-term!
Show Racism the Red Card
Pluto Class was proud to take part in the Wear Red to School today. We are an inclusive class and united. Racism has no place in our class.
“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.”
This week we have been learning about parts of our body and measuring how tall we are. The children did so well and could label all of the main parts of the body. We measured ourselves against a big tall sunflower to see our heights and then counted over 100 to where we were on the line.
We have been learning how to sing and sign the rainbow song since the beginning of the term. I have put two videos of this on as the children were so clever! You can find the videos by going into the 'Children' menu then scrolling down to 'videos' the Year 1 section is quite a long way down but you will get there in the end. We hope you enjoy the Videos as much as we did!
Our Adults; Mrs Hicks (Class Teacher), Mrs Howell (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Blake (Learning Support Assistant) and Miss Grace (Learning Support Assistant) are all very happy to have such a lovely class. We have started to do some art, writing and maths work with the children this week so keep your eyes open for photographs to come soon.
