Our topic this half term is going to focus around ‘celebrations and festivals.’ 

 

We will start by thinking about different celebrations and then start learning about Bonfire Night and why we celebrate it. After this we will be looking at the Hindu festival of lights, known as ‘Diwali’ (which takes place from 30 October until 3 November this year).  On Monday 7 November we will be joining with Year 1 and Year 2 to take part in some ‘infant workshops’ learning all about Diwali and its customs.The children will be taking part in an Indian food tasting on 11 November and we are asking for a 50 p contribution towards this activity.  Many thanks. 

 

After learning about fireworks and Diwali we will then begin to look at ‘Christmas’ and begin to prepare for the infant nativity performances on 8 and 9 December.

 

We will also be making our own Christmas postboxes (the week commencing 21 Nov) and are asking your child to bring in a piece of tinsel to decorate their box.  Many thanks.

 

The infant Christmas party takes place on 14 December.  Please can your child bring in some party food for sharing on this day. Thank you.

 

Your child will need their PE kit and wellies in school everyday and we will continue to change library books on a Monday and reading books on a daily basis.
