We started this half term with lots of chat about what the children had got up to in the holidays. It was clear that they had enjoyed celebrating Halloween and also Bonfire Night too.
This helped us to think about the ways we celebrate things in similar and different ways to other families.
Our provision was very colourful and the children really enjoyed representing fireworks using different materials including using the iPads.
We found out about the basic story behind the Gunpowder Plot but we really enjoyed finding out about some of the foods that are eaten on Bonfire Night.
Mrs Moult made some bonfire toffee and cinder toffee for us to taste. We all helped to cut up vegetables to make our own pumpkin soup which lots of children said tasted delicious.
Next week we are looking forward to a week all about kindness which will fit in nicely with Anti-bullying week and also Children in Need next Friday. Don’t forget to wear your odd socks on Monday!
