Celebrating Diwali

Reception celebrate Diwali Day - 10th November 2023

As Diwali is over the weekend, the Reception children spent a whole afternoon today learning all about the festival and it's origins. They read the book, 'Binny's Diwali' by Thrifty Umrigar and found out about some traditions and practices. The children enjoyed some Diwali yoga and made some 'diya' lamps from clay.  There were some wonderful Rangoli patterns created which required huge amounts of concentration. 

In school worship yesterday, the whole school learned about Diwali and theYear 1 and 2 children were able to share what they remembered about their previous learning about Diwali.
