As part of our learning on festivals, we learnt about how Diwali is celebrated. We designed and sculpted our own diya lamps out of clay. We enjoyed shaping the clay and adding pattern and texture to our lamps using different tools. We can't wait to paint and decorate them!
In PSHE, we have been learning all about personal hygiene and ways in which we can keep ourselves and our bodies happy and healthy. We learnt about what germs are and how they spread. We talked about the importance of washing our hands thoroughly with with warm water and soap to get rid of germs and keep everyone safe. We practised good handwashing and used glitter to represent the germs. First, we tried getting rid of the germs with a dry paper towel but there were still some germs left. Then, we tried getting rid of the germs with cold water but again we still had some germs left on our hands. Finally, we managed to get rid of all the germs using warm soapy water. Well done everyone!
In Science, we are learning about animals including humans. For our first lesson of the half term we discussed and sorted food that was healthy and food that was unhealthy. We also learnt about the five different food groups and why each of these groups is important in maintaining a balanced diet. We were able to sort food as a class into these different categories. Well done everyone-super 'Team Tiger' work!
We enjoyed developing our design and technology skills by sewing our own Christmas stockings. We cut, shaped, joined and finished materials to create our own festival stocking to take home. Some designs were reindeers, some were snowmen and there were even some santas too!
