Upper foundation have enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year celebrations. They talked about similarities and differences between their own Christmas and new year celebrations and Chinese New Year celebrations. They made Chinese lanterns and dragons and had a go at creating a dragon parade.
We have been learning about a special Hindu festival called Diwali. We have looked in non fiction books to find out about how the festival is celebrated. We have enjoyed making Diva lamps, Mendhi patterns, Rangoli patterns and retelling the story of Rama and Sita with the Diwali small world figures.
In KS1, we’ve been learning about Judaism and how the Torah is treated. We learned how precious the holy book is, so we decided to make our own filled with rules on how to make the world a better place.
