16/11/18 - Children in Need
What a fantastic day we have had in the Sparrows!! Thank you to everyone who has donated to such a worthy cause.
We have had a great afternoon at the Toy Sale, excitement was at an all time high- although we did have to have a little chat about expectations of the toy sale. It was very apparent that many children thought they were going to 'Smyths' (other toys shops are also available) to get their toys!! :)
Have a great weekend!
Our own Sparrow galaxy!
The Sparrows have worked really hard designing and creating their own planets and we are so proud of how they have turned out!
Today, during carpet time, the Sparrows discussed Remembrance Day and why we wear Poppies, as a special way of saying thank you. Afterwards we set up a making station for children to go and make their own Poppy if they wanted to. We are so proud of how hard they worked and how lovely they came out!
This week in the Sparrows we have been looking at festivals, with particular focus on the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. The Sparrows have shown a great interest in learning all about traditions and the story behind Diwali. We were very lucky to have 'Dancing Darren' come in on Wednesday, he taught us all a traditional dance! Everyone had a fantastic time!
The Sparrows family have been reunited again! Thank you for all your 'Get well wishes'- I certainly missed The Sparrows whilst I was off!
I hope you all had a lovely half term, the children certainly took pride in sharing all their holiday news on their return!
We have hit the ground running with our new topic this half term- Space. This week we have started making our own planets. We began first of all by painting our cups and dowling rods black so we can put our planet on top! The children have thought of some amazing ideas of how they will design and decorate their planets so I am looking forward to seeing the finished result next week!
Just a quick message to say a very well done to all my super Sparrows for another fantastic week! The end of the first full week for some of our friends and the second for others! I am beyond proud at how well all the children are settling and remembering the endless things they need to do!!
So feet up, enjoy the weekend and I can't wait to see you all on Monday morning! :)
