Robins Term 2

 This term our topic will be 'Celebrations!' 

See our topic overview here                                                    

 We started this term by learning about Bonfire night!

We retold the story of The Gunpowder Plot and explored making our own firework art with chalk and through splatter painting outside!

We enjoyed splatter painting fireworks outside and got very messy!


On Wednesday 7th November we celebrated the Hindu festival of Diwali!

We printed our own Rangoli patterns for good luck! 

We also designed our own henna Mendhi patterns.

We also made Indian Sweets! They were very sweet and very yummy!!!

We've also been exploring making patterns with coloured rice and exploring different herbs and spices!

Christmas is here!

We're getting very excited in Robins class as Christmas is coming up! 


We wrote our own letters to Father Christmas and then walked them to the local postbox to send them! We're hoping we might get some replies and that Father Christmas might be able to answer some of our questions. 

Isabel asked Father Christmas "Do you like apples?" and "What is your favourite food?" 

Harry asked "When is your birthday?"

Aria asked: "How many elves do you have?" 

Darcey asked "Is red your favourite colour?"

We've been reading the story of The Jolly Christmas Postman!
