2020-2021 St Edward's Reception Class is taught by Miss Pataria and supported by Mrs Palmer.
We've had a fantastic couple of weeks celebrating Chinese New Year in St Edward's Class , from learning to say Happy New Year in Cantonese to the challenge of eating rice and noodles with chop sticks .We even had a Chinese restaurant in our classroom!
We started the new term with a bang!
We looked at fireworks and explored the language that describes them and used a variety of media to create different representations.
Reception Class celebrated Diwali through the story of Rama and Sita, learning the meaning of light to Hindus. We carefully followed instructions to make salt dough for our diva lamps. Our work looked closely at repeated patterns and Rangoli. For a special treat we tasted some traditional Diwali sweets called Laddu. To finish our celebrations we took part in a Bollywood workshop and at the end of the day we were a part of a whole school performance to our families.
