The Toys that came to Visit

As part of our Puppets topic, we have been looking at toys and games from the past. We have brought into school a selection of toys from home, that belonged to our parents and grandparents. It’s been great too see so many different toys and games from the past. During circletime we showed our toys to each other and spoke about how old they are and who they belonged to.

Divali Celebrations at Saltoun

diva-lamp.jpgThe nursery class and P1/2/3 have been learning about the Hindu festival of light – Divali.
At assembly today the nursery played some indian music using an indian drum and other instruments. Dexter very kindly brought the drum in from home.
P1/2/3 have been learning the story of Rama and Sita and customs associated with the festival. They have made rangoli patterns, diva lamps, indian sweeties and shadow puppets. They used their shadow puppets today to tell the story of Rama and Sita at assembly.
Feel free to look at our Divali work which is displayed in the classrooms and corridors.

The Old Oak

In the forest there lies a tree,
Strong and majestic for all to see.
His bark is wrinkly,tough and bold,
Standing strong, so very old.
His branches are mossy and very bare.
He stands like a giant through the wind and hail,
No wonder he’s cracked from head to tail.
