News from Reception Class

Once Upon a party

We began our new topic of ‘Once upon a party’ by learning about Diwali this week.

We had a fantastic introduction to this from Kirtida who told us about  the festival; performed the story of Rama and Sita using puppets; played us some traditional music using her drum and mesmerising voice; and allowed us to dress in the traditional dress.

In addition to this great introduction, we have been creating our own rangoli patterns outdoors and indoors.  We have practised using a mouse on the computer to make firework pictures. We also investigated making and tasting barfi – Indian sweets.  We investigated how to mix the ingredients together and how many of each ingredient we would need as Kirtida had not left us an exact recipe!
