Welcome back after the midterm, we hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! It’s hard to believe it’s November already, & winter is definitely starting to set in, so we’ll be talking about the change of month & season this week with the children, as well as Diwali, the festival of lights which originated in India, which starts this Thursday 4th November. This is a wonderful occasion which celebrates the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness; we will be learning about all the different preparations and rituals that are practised at this time, & the children will be making Diwali candles with paper plates & crepe paper.
I see clouds, they look so puffy,
Big & little, light & fluffy.
Clouds block the sun, they bring the shade,
Look really closely, see what pictures are made!
I really don’t mind a cloudy day,
But look out – rain could be on the way!
