* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *
The Bluebells class gathered information from all of the pupils and staff in Willowbank school. We went round all the classes and asked everyone what their favourite weather was.
We counted our findings and put these on 3 charts. One showing the Infant corridor’s favourite, one showing the Middle Primary’s favourite and one showing the Secondary Department’s favourite.
The Beech class are in India this week as part of our mini-topic. We have had great fun exploring the culture of India and Hinduism through the arts and story telling.
We made our own rangoli patterns using dyed salt.
We learned about the Taj Mahal and other religious buildings that are in India.
We made diva lamps after learning all about the Festival of Light – Diwali
Skye helped to make home-made playdough and used lentils to make a Mandala style pattern on it.
We also read and role-played the story of Rama and Sita before exploring the festival of Diwali and learning about the different Hindu Gods.
