Diwali Celebrations in Class 3
Our good friend Mrs Daxa Patel visited us on 9th November to help us learn about the traditions and stories associated with the Hindu festival of Diwali, which took place during this week. We saw Rangoli patterns being created, watched a film about an Indian family celebrating Diwali and heard the Ramayana story of Rama and Sita. Following the visit, pupils made their own diva lamps and created their own versions of the Ramayana.

Well done to all of the players in our 'Ballaugh Ravens' High-5 netball team who won the regional round of the current Island Primary Schools Netball Festival.
We now progress to the Island finals. Great effort and teamwork from everyone!
Class 3 Viking Adventures
The topic this term in Class 3 has been Vikings. We started with a fantastic outdoor experience at Ardwhallan, where we spent the day inside a real Viking Longhouse, making and eating our own bread and trying to create fire! We rounded off the day battling each other with swords and shields that we have decorated back at school. Our Viking adventures
at school have included learning songs and creating a large Viking wall frieze. At the start of February we went to the House of Manannan to learn more about how the Vikings travelled and lived.
