Diwali Festival

As the hands will show – there was a Diwali festival in Class 1,2,3 this afternoon. We enjoyed Indian music, a variety of crafts and activities and Henna painting. We thank Mrs Oak for her hard work….two hours on the floor in the same position without even a water break !! And doesn’t the hard work show off !!!

In addition to our Celebrations unit, a lot of hard work was achieved this week by the children. In Maths, the children continued their understanding of number, dependent on their level. Some of the children deepened their ability and knowledge of subtraction with regrouping, others addition with regrouping.
In Language, we looked at Synonyms or “exciting words” to enrich our story writing results. Some children were introduced to the online thesaurus. So many new words !!!
Thank you all for a fantastic first week of 2013 !! Let the learning and celebrations continue !!!
