Diwali in the Nursery

Wow, what a way to start off the second half of the Autumn Term! The Nursery children were joined by one of our parents to teach them all about the Hindu festival, Diwali.

The children learnt all about Diwali and the reasons it is celebrated. They then enjoyed developing their fine motor skills to make Rangoli patterns using play dough, lentils and dried beans, before dancing with ribbons and instruments to music. The morning was rounded off by children decorating their very own diya lamps to take home and display around the house.
