We have been busy doing lots of work based around the story of Handa this week. The children have looked at all the different animals and fruits in the story. We looked at and carefully drew some of the fruits. We made fruit salad and tasted some of the fruits. Lots of children were able to retell the story in their own words. A nice activity to do at home, maybe instead of a bedtime story, would be to ask them to retell the story to you!
The beebots were very popular and lots of children had a go at pressing the buttons to make the bot move along a trail to the different animals in the story.
Next week is friendship week throughout the school. We will be doing lots of activities highlighting friendships, the importance of helping each other, working together, respecting difference and respecting each other. In our cooking activity we will make a large cake and decorate it all together, everyone adding something to the decoration.

This week we have been doing lots of colour mixing, finding out what colours we could make by mixing red, yellow and blue in different ways. We also talked about different celebrations, Halloween, Firework night and Diwali. Lots of children told us what they already knew about the celebrations and we used books and the internet to find out more. We also talked about the importance of keeping safe and looking after our pets on firework night.The ‘Spooks and Sparkles’ disco organised by FOWH was a great success. Thank you to all those who came.
