10.11.17 Fireworks and Remembrance Day

This week we have continued with our exploration of Diwali and finished off decorating our Diva lamps. Wow! I'm sure you'll agree that they look amazing. We have created our own Mehndi hands by using paint and even did a spot of Indian dancing!
We made chocolate 'sparkler' biscuits and had them for our snack. We also had great fun creating our own shadows using the stick puppets and making fireworks in the play dough.
We learnt about the meaning of Remembrance Day and what the poppy represents. We joined the rest of the school in a 2 minute silence to think about the soldiers. Then we made our own paper poppies and used the correct colours for each part. To complement our learning we decorated a biscuit with a poppy by using the icing. We enjoyed eating them at snack time! Thank you for the £1 a week snack contribution which goes towards our cooking and snack costs.
