The theme of the week has been all about Friendships. We have drawn pictures and written letters/ cards for our friends, taken part in circle times on what makes a good friend and read books about Friendship.
Next week we will continue to focus on the theme of friendships. We will focus on the book ‘On Sudden Hill’, which looks at a friendship between two boys and a box. We will read the story, take part in some role play and talk about how the characters feel in certain parts of the book. As the story involves the main characters turning cardboard boxes into different creations, we will also be making our own creations too.

This week we have been learning about Diwali - a festival celebrated by Hindu people. We recreated Rangoli patterns through drawing, painting and soft play blocks. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and made diva lamps from playdough and decorative materials.
Next week we will also be looking at the theme of Fireworks and Bonfire night. We will turn our role play shed into a Hot Chocolate stall and our small world area into a bonfire. We will talk about our firework experiences and look at a fireworks display and recreate them. We will also listen to the story ‘Whatever Next!’ Could you please bring in any cardboard rolls for making rockets.
