With World Book Day almost upon us, the children in Reception are having great fun reading What the Ladybird Heard. As well as the literacy part to this work, we are also taking a musical approach with plenty of singing. We have been learning many songs that represent each animal, as well as sharing our thoughts about what the different characters in the story might be feeling.
We are all looking forward to a very special event taking place in the Michael Faraday Reception over the coming weeks – the Indian experience! We will be spending a whole afternoon learning and celebrating Indian culture. Many of the parents have very kindly volunteered to give u their time and to offer their skills and knowledge. We will be having an Indian food tasting session, as well as drawing many of the elaborate patterns that we associate with Diwali. Plus we can’t wait for the Bollywood style dancing lessons that are going to be given by our regular Zumba teacher!
