This week the children have been learning about the festival Diwali. We looked at the story of Rama and Sita and how light played a part if helping them find their way home. We then made our own Diva lamps thinking about how we can decorate them using tools, paint and even glitter! We looked at the food they eat during Diwali and found out they like to eat lots of sweet treats. We made our own Barfi as a sweet treat. The children loved it saying it was delicious and yummy. Finally We had a visit from Deepa’s mum who showed us pictures and talked to use about how they had celebrated the festival.
This week in Reception we have been looking at Diwali. We had a Diwali celebration day on Friday. We had lots of fun trying some Indian food, having a go at Bollywood dancing and making our own Diva lamps. The children now know the story of Rama and Sita. Why don’t you ask them what happened and how Rama and Sita found their way home?
Have a fantastic half term and great ready for some pumpkin fun the first week back.
