We follow the seasons, rhythms and festivals of the year at Children's House.
Since the beginning of November, children have been excitedly talking about firework displays they've seen at local parks or from their windows.
Children shared talk: using words to describe the sounds, sights and smells as well as how they felt.
Children have been creating paintings using a range of paints and mark making tools to make their own firework pictures.
On Friday, we shared some sparklers in the garden with the children in small groups.
Staff talked about staying safe and they took turns to come forward and hold their sparkler safely.
Children were mesmerised at the light and sounds that came from their sparkler.
We then put them in a bucket of water to douse them and sand to keep them dry.
Children have since shared their photographs and talked about the experience.
If you have any photographs of things you and your child have done together that they enjoyed, please send Becky a photograph to print for their Special Book firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child was in on Friday, they will have photographs in their Special Books - please borrow them and talk to your child about all the wonderful learning they have been involved in.
The blog is updated regularly with a range of learning from across our wonderful school. All the rich learning experiences the children have been involved in will be in their Special Books so please do borrow those regularly.
