What We Learnt Last Half Term

Let There Be Light

Wow! What a great half term the Ducks have had! We have had a busy half term full of learning and exploring in different ways.

Our Topic this half term has been ‘Let There Be Light!’ which has linked perfectly to both festivals of Diwali and Christmas! We enjoyed exploring different light sources such as torches, light up toys, light boards and using them to create multi-sensory experiences within class.

During our English sessions we have been reading ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’. We have loved using bright paints, glitters and reflective materials to explore the story. We have particularly enjoyed the quiet, calm environment that has been created weekly to encourage us to relax and slow down.

We had a fantastic Languages Day exploring India! We tasted authentic foods, dressed up in traditional clothing and danced using scarves and bells. Our favourite part was creating beautiful Rangoli patterns using the brightly coloured rice.

We have had a lovely run up to Christmas, slowly introducing elements to our classroom to create a festive environment. We have enjoyed decorating the tree, decorating our stockings as well as creating beautiful cards for our family and friends.

The Ducks have really settled in this half term and it is lovely to see everybody feeling safe and happy! The Team hope that you have a lovely break and rest, ready for more learning and fun next half term!
