Where every child matters

Brilliant Bridgwater

Gruffalo's had a fantastic week learning about the local community celebrations in the town of Bridgwater. We started the week by coming into school dressed up in costumes to take part in the Autumn seasonal tradition of 'Halloween'. The children had the opportunity to carve out pumpkins and to look inside at the seeds that we scooped out. It was interesting to find out about the Hindu festival of 'Diwali' the festival of light and 'Fireworks'. The children used the clay to create their own diva lamps and used different seeds/lentils to create 'Rangoli' patterns. We talked about the importance of 'Fire' safety. It was great fun having a camp fire in our forest school session, where we toasted marshmallows and drank some hot chocolate. We explored painting some fantastic 'Firework' pictures using paints and coloured chalks. On Thursday we learnt about people in our community and how they can help us. As a class we made a pledge to be kind and helpful, we hung these on our class tree. Finally, on Friday we learnt about 'Bridgwater Carnival' and worked together to create  junk carnival carts and flamboyant masks. We ended the week with a school parade to show the whole school what wonderful art work we had created.
