Diwali Day

Monday 9th October was Diwali Day in year 3. Throughout the day, year 3 children took part in a variety of activities to learn more about the festival of Diwali. The children listened to the story of Rama and Sita. They then created characters and objects from the story using plasticine or paper and retold the story in their own puppet shows. They learnt about how Hindus celebrate the five days of Diwali. The children also created their own Rangoli patterns with coloured rice or beads or drew their own, considering the symmetry and colours used in their patterns. Some of the children attended a lantern making workshop to create star shaped lanterns and are excited about joining the forthcoming Diwali parade in Northampton on 4th November with their hand made lanterns.

There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.

Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends.

They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems.


Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
