Halloween & Bonfire Night

This term we will be making a large wall display for bonfire night and doing various art activities for Halloween; e.g. making some bats, ghosts and pumpkin pots.


We will also be celebrating Christmas, decorating a tree, making a card, reindeer food etc. and teaching the children some simple Christmas songs for them to sing after the Christmas party to parents.
