Rangoli Patterns

Hello Nightingales and families!

We hope you're having a wonderful half-term so far.  Let's hope it doesn't rain every day!

This half-term, the children have been really enjoying learning about Divali, the Festival of Lights and how it is celebrated by the Hindu Community. As part of this, the children learned all about Rangoli patterns. These are colourful designs created on the floor, often on the doorstep of a home.  They are often created during Divali, to welcome in Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and to bring strength, generosity and good luck. These patterns can be created from coloured sand, rice, flower petals or quartz powder. Flowers and nature are often represented. Here is a slideshow of the work of Nightingale Class and their interpretations of Rangoli Patterns, crafted in coloured chalk.  They adorned our playground until the rain washed them away! Don't they look stunning?

National Poetry Day - Thursday 1st October


We were absolutely delighted with the efforts the children put into the poems they shared today.  They were confident and clear as they stood at the front of the class and read (some of them off-by-heart) their poems to their peers.  We had a lovely variety of genres from riddles and nursery rhymes to comedy and classics.  Well done, Nightingales! 

Welcome to Nightingale Class 2020


We have so enjoyed welcoming the children back to school - they have settled in really well and are already producing lots of lovely work.


Just a few reminders:


  • Forest School is on Tuesdays
  • P.E. is on Fridays
  • Water bottle, packed lunch (if having one) and reading books should be in school every day
  • No rucksacks in schools please; children should bring in their things in a plastic bag or wallet
  • There is no school fruit provided for children at break times in Key Stage 2 so please do provide your child with a fruit snack (NO NUTS)


On Forest School and PE days, children should come to school dressed for these activities.  


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office.
