Celebrating St Patrick's Day!

 St Patrick's Day is celebrated annually on 17th March. The day honours the patron saint of Ireland, but celebrations are held around the world. 

Miss Kane wore her traditional costume and talked to us about some of the traditions and celebrations that would be taking place in Ireland - she even showed us how to do some Irish dancing!

We would love to hear about any traditions that you and your family / friends have for 
St Patrick's Day.

Let us know!

Wibbly Pig has 10 Balloons

We enjoyed finding out about Holi - the Hindu Spring Festival of Colour - and thought this next book by Mick Inkpen would be a good one to share as it had lots of colourful balloons!

Happy Holi!

We have been finding out about the Hindu Spring Festival of Holi. It celebrates the arrival of spring flowers and when the main crops are almost ready for the spring harvest. 
The festival lasts anything from three to five days and is known as the Festival of Colour.

Do you like our colourful paintings that we created using the Splash activity on the computer?

We designed some repeating colour pattern necklaces . . . 
And explored colour mixing for our spring flowers . . . 

It was lots of fun splatter painting the large flower heads for the center of our display!

You can find out more about Holi by watching the video clips . . .

Happy Holi everyone!

Star of the Week!

Well done to Albie, Jasper and Wiktor for being awarded our 'Star of the Week'.

Congratulations to all of you!

Signs of Spring

We talked about the four seasons today and then went on a hunt for signs of Spring. It was lovely and  sunny and the birds were singing. We spotted lots of daffodils. bluebell shoots, celandines and trees with buds about to burst open. 

 Have you seen any other signs of Spring?
