We have been learning all about the Hindu celebration of Diwali, the festival of light. We watched a video clip about Diwali as a stimulus for writing lists about the festival in our Literacy learning. We then enjoyed making diva lamps out of clay using our fine motor skills. In our Maths learning we created rangoli patterns using coloured sand and pastels. We also used a variety of resources to make other patterns, including mehndi patterns. Some of the Year 1 children made a Mango Lassi drink (which they really enjoyed tasting) and then wrote instructions for how to make it in our Literacy learning.
