Our exciting learning in Autumn Term

As part of our Sparkle and Shine project, we have enjoyed exploring different celebrations that take place in Autumn and Winter, focusing on the significance of light at this time of year. We have enjoyed creating diva lamps, mehndi patterns and menorah handprints. We have discovered more about how Christmas, Diwali and Hanukkah are celebrated around the world.

Thankyou to those who brought in pictures of their celebrations. We had fun sharing these and answering questions about why the event was special…

science investigation

We have been focusing on celebrations with lights so we investigated light. We used our classification and sorting skills to decide which objects were shiny and which were dull. We then used the torches to see which objects reflected light.

Traditional Tales

We have been learning The Gingerbread Man and have done lots of lovely activities around this story.


This week we have been celebrating Christmas and talking about our own traditions.

Christmas adventure in the local area!

Today Reception and Nursery went on a magical adventure to Shipley Glen Tramway where the visited Santa and his elves. We then came back to have a hot chocolate and Christmas story. Santa had even surprised us and dropped off his sack at school with some presents in for when we arrived back to school.

Miss Rhodes would like to thank all the children who were so well behaved and polite. Thank you to all parent helpers and staff who came too.

A fab day had by all!
