On Thursday, the children in Foundation Stage learnt about the festival of Diwali. The children began the morning learning about who celebrates Diwali and how people celebrate Diwali.
The children then enjoyed lots of activities linked to their learning about Diwali.
The children made sweets for Diwali because people who celebrate Diwali give sweets to their friends as a way of celebrating.
The children made their own Rangoli patterns as people decorate their homes with Rangoli patterns.
The children learnt that Diwali is the ‘Festival of Lights’. The children all made their own Diya Lamp using clay and sequins to decorate them.
We then finished our day with a story all about celebrating Diwali.
