Holly class have been searching the environment for uses of everyday materials. Over this half term we will be investigating some of the properties of materials and finding out why they are used in certain items.
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM YEAR 1
On Wednesday 21st November Holly Class celebrated Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights.
The name originally comes from the word dipavali, meaning a row of lights. Wherever Diwali is being celebrated you will see shops, houses and public places decorated with small, earthenware, oil lamps known as diyas. They are usually placed in rows on window sills and outside buildings as decorations. It is celebrated around the world by people who follow the Hindu religion.
The Festival of Lights, as with most ancient legends, helps us to know the truth of victory of good over evil.

These photographs is part of our display of our work from the book 'Where the poppies now grow', is our English working wall, in our classroom.
We have loved exploring this book and have produced some fantastic work.
I am a true advocate of sharing good practise and love to showcase and celebrate the children's learning. I put these photos on my personal twitter page.
To my surprise, Hilary Robinson the author of 'Where the poppies now grow' and Martin Impey the illustrator both sent me lovely comments and have retweeted our photos on their own twitter pages, generating lots of likes and positive comments!
Well done to us!!!
We are reading the book 'Where the poppies now grow' by Hilary Robinson.
Childhood friends, Ben and Ray, find their innocent war games become real as the Great War rages around them. Set during the First World War, in simple rhyme, Where the Poppies Now Grow takes readers on a journey of friendship set against a changing landscape of innocence, of war and then finally, of peace.
