Our topic this half term has been all about different celebrations. Here are some of the different celebrations we have been learning about.

We learnt all about the Hindi celebration of Diwali. We made rangoli patterns in the coloured rice, listened to and acted out the story of Rama and Sita and made diya lamps because Diwali is the festival of light.

Next we learnt about the Jewish celebration Hanukkah. We listened to the story about the 8 days that it take places over 8 days and we talked about what activities we do on each day of the week. We made a menorah, and then had donuts to celebrate the festival.

We have started our RE topic all about birthdays. It was Ellie the elephants birthday so we made cards, decorated cakes and the classroom and had a party for her to celebrate. We will begin to get ready for the next big celebration…Christmas!
