Learning about Diwali
All the children in nursery have been looking at 'Light and Dark' this week. We have a point of interest in the pink hall where the children have been interested in the items. This week, the main point of interest has been Rama and Sita and the festival of Diwali. It's recognised as the 'Festival of Light'.
We have enjoyed the story of Rama and Sita and the message it sends out - light over dark. Some of the children have made Diva Lamps made from clay. Dragonflies have made gorgeous lanterns and Ladybirds and Butterflies have made patterns with the chalks, paints and brushes.
