The children in Early Years have been learning about celebrations to do with light this week. Lots of them came to our school fireworks display at the weekend and some of our families are celebrating Diwali this week.
On Wednesday afternoon, we had a Diwali party where the children got to make and eat some traditional Indian party food, create rangoli patterns in coloured rice and learn some Indian dance moves.
The children have enjoyed sharing the food and trying new things. They have also listened to the stories behind these festivals; about Guy Fawkes and Rama & Sita. This has given them great opportunities to discuss the story themes and think about why we celebrate special times.
