Our week has passed very quickly with us all being very busy with lots of new things to see and do.
This week we learned about Diwali. We heard the traditional story of Rama and Sita which we enjoyed very much. Here is the link to the video, if you would like to watch the story… https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/stories/lets-celebrate-diwaliperformance
On Wednesday we were lucky enough to be visited by the Lions of Bhangra, who taught us an amazing dance. The dance told the story of a day in the life of a farmer, and we learned the meaning of each dance move as we performed it.
Later that same day we dressed up and played our own drum music during busytime, finally sitting down and sharing samosas and sweets together as a mini feast!
Finally, we found out today that Reception were joint winners in our War Time Bake Off competition that was held last week. We found a lovely war time ginger cake recipe and had spent time making the cakes and some beautiful poppy decorations to put on top. We were very proud of our creations which were displayed at our fabulous tea party!!
Here is our recipe if you would like to try it too!
