November 2016 in Reception 1

This month has been a very exciting month for Reception. Our topic this term is “Celebrations” and we have focused on a different celebration each week. We enjoyed learning about carnival, watching videos of people dressed in amazing costumes and listening to steel drum bands. We designed and made some costumes and had our own carnival in the hall with music and instruments. We also learnt about Diwali. In Maths we created Rangoli patterns using coloured rice. At the beginning of the month, we celebrated fireworks night. We watched videos of real fireworks and then used our voices to create firework noises. We enjoyed creating firework pictures using string dipped in paint and then swirled across the page. We added glitter to make the fireworks look more realistic. We’ve had great fun!
