Festivals & Celebrations - Autumn Term 2020

This week the children have enjoyed a whole school Christmas Lunch and a fun Christmas party. The children have been extremely well behaved. We are very proud of them.

We wish you a very Happy Christmas to you and your families.

The week of Christmas


The larks have had a super fun Christmas week, we have done party games, had Christmas dinner and many other Christmas activities

Christmas fun!


We hope you enjoy the Larks singing and dancing in the School production?


The children are getting very excited about Christmas and they are designing their own Christmas cards.

We are asking the children what they have enjoyed learning best this term. It maybe yoga, cooking pizzas, pancakes or playing on the wheeled toys outside during circle time.



 What have we been learning?


This week the Larks have been practising their Christmas song “Star light, star bright” with a magical dance. The children have enjoyed making sparkly headdresses for their performance.

The children are rehearsing speaking in sentences about what they would like from Santa for Christmas. Let’s hope he is listening!


We have an interactive Arctic animals’ snowy scene and the Stable with wooden figures and animals for the children to explore with. They particularly love Baby Jesus!


Please remember the children need to bring/ wear a Christmas jumper next Monday for their Christmas performance.

Healthy mind, healthy body


On Tuesday Larks Class enjoyed their weekly yoga session. They took part in lots of fun activities to focus on their breathing and exercises to develop gross and fine motor control.


The Larks Class have been practising their cutting skills and enjoyed designing their own party food plates. Yummy! They then went on to say initial sounds in words.


They have also been learning and practising new songs, listening to the Nativity story and ordering compare bears according to their size and colour. Well done Larks you have worked hard.

What we learnt this week


This week the children had great fun making pizzas and especially enjoyed eating them.   They ordered pizzas from the menus in our Pizzeria and enjoyed serving their pretend dishes to each other. 

We have been learning about Diwali


This week we have been learning about Diwali and making lanterns to decorate the classroom. We have learnt about why and how Hindus celebrate this festival of light.  The children enjoyed listening to the story Rama and Sita. They were very interested in how Sita dropped jewels so she could leave a trail to be rescued safely.
