Foundation Stage Weekly Newsletter

Puffins and Penguins Weekly Newsletter, 5th July 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your support on Sports Day, it was a wonderful day. To celebrate the occasion we would like to share some photographs (please see the Newsletter on the 'Letters and Newsletters' tab of the website).

For the past three days, the children have been learning about different religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism and Islam. This experience is also about the children trying something new and using their school values. They have been returning to class excited to share their experiences, this is what some of the children said:

I made the Kaaba, it is in Mecca, a special place for Muslims.

At first I was really worried about going somewhere else but now I know where I am going its fine. The big children help me.

I made The Five Pillars of Islam today with the lego.

Today I learned about the Hindu God Ganesha.

We used ipads to record our voice, to talk about Buddha.

I love working with the other children, it’s so much fun.
