During Lockdown

Lots of wonderful learning took place at home and in school during lockdown.  

St Andrew's Day 

On November 30th we celebrated St Andrews's Day, Scotland's national day. We read a book called 'There was a wee lassie', we made kilts, listened to Scottish music, made Scottish thistles, baked and tasted short bread.

Bonfire Night
We spent a week learning about Bonfire Night. We shared the story of Guy Fawkes, made fireworks using a range of media, created firework dance moves in P.E and wrote some firework sounds. 


We celebrated Harvest in Reception by sharing the book 'The Little Red Hen. We attended a whole school assembly, made our own bread and explored what could be found inside fruit and vegetables.
