To celebrate Interfaith Week, Reception looked at Sikhism and learned about Guru Nanak. The children pretended to be Guru Nanak and told their friends how they should live. They also drew a portrait of him.
This week in Reception we have been drawing fireworks and using the wax resist painting technique. To celebrate Remembrance Day we have been painting poppies. We have also started to learn songs for our nativity performance.
