We use money to buy clothes, food and toys. Where does money come from? Why do we need money? Do you recognise any of the coins. Take a look at the pictures from your homework which explains a little about what you use money for or how much money you have saved.
We have been very busy in the last couple of weeks of term with all of the Christmas celebrations. We have had; our own Christmas play performance, the pantomime, Christmas lunch, Santa, Christmas jumper day and our own party in class! Take a look at the pictures below to see what we have been doing.
We would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the parents and carers for the first term and to say you should all be very proud of your children. Have a lovely break and a happy new year! See you all on January 3rd 2017!
This week we have been looking at the celebration of Diwali. RL have been focusing on the fact that it is Hindu and Sikh religions that celebrate Diwali. The most important thing that the children have learnt is that everyone celebrates different things and we have to respect this. RL have learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and have been learning about the fact that Diwali is a celebration of lights. They have talked about different ways in which people celebrate; they have feasts, they wear new clothes and exchange gifts. RL have also been looking at Rangoli pattern and that people have Rangoli mats outside their homes at this time to welcome in Lakshmi; the goddess of wealt
h, and to welcome in family and friends at this time of celebration.
Take a look at some of their symmetrical Rangoli patterns below. Remember, symmetrical means it has to be exactly the same on both sides.
