Year 3/4C have been getting to know “Stig” ... an enigmatic stone-age boy who lives in a rubbish dump near Stonehenge and whose story is described in the classic children’s novel “Stig of the Dump” written by Clive King. The students were inspired to create their own models of Stonehenge using clay and natural materials from around the school.

happy diwali

On 4th November, the students from Year 3/4a had the opportunity to learn about Diwali and how and why it is being celebrated. We did some art and craft, wrote cards, tried some sweets and even spring-cleaned our classroom.

The name Diwali, also spelled Divali,  is derived from the Sanskrit term dipavali, meaning “row of lights.” The festival generally symbolises the victory of light over darkness.
