Reception learn all about Diwali
In Reception the children love to expand our knowledge of the wider world and explore how people may be different to us. Recently they enjoyed finding out about the Hindu festival of Diwali; the classes read the story of why it is celebrated including retelling it through music and dance. Staff and children also spent a whole day dressed up in special clothes, making colourful rice Rangoli patterns, special Diwa clay lamps and having a delicious snack of Indian food. It was agreed that it’s truly a festival of light!
