Funky Festivals

This week in Reception, we have been learning all about two special Autumn festivals; Halloween and Bonfire Night. We started our week with a super spooky Halloween party, where we all dressed up in our Halloween costumes instead of our school uniform. We enjoyed seeing everyone’s different costumes like skeletons, cats, clowns, witches, and superheroes! We danced the afternoon away with lots of party games, finished off with lots of Halloween goodies to eat together.

As part of our topic activities this week we have spent time learning all about the bones in the human skeleton, dancing to the song “dem bones“, making skeleton pictures in the cut and stick area, and creating maths positions in the outdoor mud kitchen. we also learnt all about bonfire night and a man called Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament! We made our own firework picture, learnt about bonfire safety and melted chocolate to make our own chocolate apples (they tasted delicious!)

In literacy, we read the story what’s in the witches kitchen. We then had a go at writing our own silly soup spells by adding different objects into our cauldron. We write words such as; bat, cat, log, dog, hat, rat, eyes, and pumpkin.
