Wow! What a fantastic week we have had in Reception. This week our big question was ‘How do we celebrate Diwali?’ We have read stories about the Festival of Light and how people celebrate it. We have drawn pictures of divas, sari’s, fireworks, sweets and rangolis. We have made jewellery and had a go at making and tasting our own chapatis.

On Thursday we went for a trip to The Hive, and we had so much fun! We had some stories together before going off to explore the children section. We learnt about a library card and how we can have 12 books for 3 weeks. We had time to look at the books in the comfortable chairs and when we had finished looking at them, we got to take them to the sort machine to see what happens to books when they are returned.  A fabulous time was had by all.
