Festival of lights


Posted by Class 1 | Posted in General News | Posted on 20-10-2017

We had a fantastic Monday morning learning and celebrating Diwali. We learnt all about the festival of lights that happens every autumn. It was so much fun dressing up in colourful Hindu clothes and listening to traditional Diwali music.


We joined in lots of different Diwali activities such as exploring beads and shiny texture trays seeing how the light reflects and sparkles.


We also did lots of dancing and moving our bodies with ribbons and tinsel hoops. To make things even more exciting we rolled over bubble wrap with our wheels and jumped on it with our feet to make it crackle like fireworks!




In the afternoon we had a go at making our own Diwali lanterns using card, glue and glitter. It was great creating our own designs and patterns then using battery powered candles to make them light up.

What do you think of our beautiful lanterns?

Weekend activity: Can you find objects around the house that might sparkle or shine in the light?
