What a magical beginning we had to our very festive Friday. The lighting of the tree took place and Mr Flute and our Ethos group dressed the altar and prepared the Advent Wreath. Our wonderful choir sang by candle light and the children in Key Stage 1 shared a song from their upcoming nativity.

This week in Nursery we have been celebrating Diwali, the festival of light. The children learnt about the special celebration and tried on beautiful clothes that are worn during the festival. They used clay, sequins and tools to create wonderful diva lamps and used sand and paper shapes to create bright and beautiful rangoli patterns to bring good luck. We finished our Diwali celebrations by tasting some special party food and voting for our favourite.

This week in forest learning, Nursery have been making ice mobiles. The children collected interesting natural objects and placed them in a bowl. The children filled their bowls with water and left them outside overnight. When we returned to the forest something amazing had happened! The cold weather had changed our water into ice. We looked closely at the changes and talked about how the ice felt. We predicted that the ice will melt when the sunshine comes out to warm up the day.
