Celebrating Diwali

This week Laurel Class have been celebrating Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. We talked about celebrations and how families celebrate different things. We used the internet to find out about Diwali. If you want to remind yourself about Diwali please use the links in our curriculum section of our class page.

On Friday Laurel Class worked as a team, just like Reciprocal Ant, to plan a Diwali party. This was our plan:

1. Clean the classroom

2. Decorate the classroom

3. Get dressed in special clothes

4. Make special food

5. Mehndi patterns

6. Give cards and presents

7. Dancing and party games

8. Fireworks

Then we acted out our plan. Cleaning the classroom and making the special biscuits were the most popular things to do! We really enjoyed celebrating as a class!

Forest Schools

Laurel Class were fantastic explorers and investigators at Forest School. 

Our Class Assembly!

We had a great time sharing our learning all about the Little Red Hen and Autumn. Laurel and Redberry Class told the story of the Little Red Hen, we shared the Red Hen rap and taught our parents how to make bread. then we sang our Autumn songs!

Thank you for coming to watch us. Our confidence is growing and we already have a lot of learning to look back on with pride. 

We are looking forward to sharing more learning with you next half term!

Laurel Class go on a visit out of school...on a bus!

We visited Green's Windmill in Sneinton. We had a fantastic time travelling there on a bus. We really enjoyed sitting and looking out of the windows and talking to our friends.

We saw the windmill...it was enormous!! We found out how the wind turns the sails and makes the huge stones turn and the wheat is ground into flour. We impressed Andy because we all knew the story of the Little Red Hen really well.

We used some of the Little Red Hen's flour to make some bread.

Mrs Leafe and Mrs Khalil were very impressed with how we took responsibility for ourselves and represented Beeston Fields Primary and Nursery School very well. We showed great confidence and perseverance climbing up and down all the stairs in the windmill. Ray, who helped us make the bread, also commented on our confidence.

Well done Laurel Team! You are really showing how to take responsibility for yourself and make good choices. Your confidence has grown enormously and you represented our school very well. You made us all feel proud! 

Thank you so very much to all the parents and grandparents who came to help us and made our morning so successful.

Brushing Buddies

Laurel Class have started brushing their teeth at school. We know it is important to look after our teeth. We brush our teeth for two minutes. #Responsibility

Laurel Class walked to Beeston library!

Laurel Class had a great afternoon. We walked all the way to Beeston library (that's a long way when you are four years old, or just turned five!) We met Steve, the librarian. He read us a funny story about skeletons and we all laughed. He talked to us about the books and what we could do. He showed us how to check our books out. We all chose two books to take home with us. We all have library cards now! So we can visit the library with our families and borrow more books. Mrs Leafe says "Well done Laurel team!  You represented Beeston Fields Primary school  really well." Remember you need to return your books. You can keep them for three weeks.

Thank you very very much to all the parents who came with us. Your support is greatly appreciated and the children loved having you join us.

PE in the blue hall

Laurel Class has a great time working in the blue hall. We explored different ways of travelling like hopping, jumping, skipping, jogging, marching and tiptoeing. We made sure we looked for spaces so that we didn't bump in to anyone. We concentrated and tried our best!

Our first few weeks in Laurel Class.

We have been learning so much during our first few weeks in Laurel Class. We have been exploring and investigating the environment, inside and outside. We have been learning all about our school and class values - Confidence  Pride  Creativity  Enjoyment  Perseverance  Aspiration  Responsibility  Diversity.

Mrs Leafe and Mrs Khalil have been very impressed with the good choices we have been making and we have all been awarded lots of Bee Stars already.

Have a look at our photos and talk to us about the things we have been doing and learning.

What a great start to our first year in big school. We are going to learn so much and be just like Resilient Rhino - 'Always try your best and never give up'!
