It has been a busy week for children and staff at Steeple Bumpstead Pre-School.
The children started the week by making a Poppy Wreath for Remembrance Sunday which will be placed at the War Memorial in Steeple Bumpstead to remember all the soldiers that have lost their lives in combat.

The week finished by celebrating Diwali, the Festival of Light – the children made flower decorations, danced to Indian music, listened to a story about Rama and Sita, and took home their names in Devanagari, the script Hindi is written in.

Pre-School Manager Carol Bradley said, ‘the children have had a fun, but poignant week, learning about different traditions  in today’s society , and also about the past, and why we wear poppies.
Thank you to everyone involved in these activities, especially Sam Smith. The support and help we get
from our local community is fantastic’
