All our pupils made fabric poppies which were sold off to parents to raise extra donations for the Poppy Appeal. Year 5 and 6 wrote prayers and poems of Remembrance and read beautifully in our whole school Remembrance worship. The whole school also produced some beautiful charcoal and paint artwork - do come in and see our display outside Skylark Class.
The whole school learnt about this annual Festival of Lights in the Hindu calendar. They had the opportunity to take part in different activities including exploring the symmetry of Rangoli patterns during numeracy lessons and creating their own rangoli patterns on the floor using chalk. Mrs Kapoor brought in several of her saris and our children enjoyed learning how to wear them.
We also learnt about Mendhi, the art of henna painting on the body, with children having the opportunity to design their own beautiful scroll designs.
We also enjoyed learning about Rama and Sita and the triumph of good over evil.
