This week at Sherriff Road the children have been enjoying preparing for Halloween by contributing their own experiences on Halloween. Children were also joined by a teacher for pumpkin designing and a small discussion was given on Halloween.
We would like to take this opportunity and say a huge thank you to our special guest Raki (Anushka's mum) who joined us this week for a cultural lesson to help us celebrate Diwali.
Small groups of children were invited to join Raki for a story, own experiences, art work, dressing up and even a small gift was given to demonstrate how Diwali is celebrated followed by a traditional sweet.
Thank you for all your effort☺
The children explored the following areas:
*Physical Development: pumpkin models out of playdough
*Art and Crafts: pumpkin and bat designing
*Understanding of The World: Diwali story
*Science: Mixing colours

we also remembered Miss Linda.
The children and staff celebrated this day by wearing something pink (Miss Linda’s favourite colour) and we all released balloons in her memory!
