Learning about Diwali

This week in Nursery we have been learning about Diwali. We know that Diwali lasts for 5 days and is also known as 'the festival of lights'.  We enjoyed making diva lamps with clay and practicing fine motor skills to pinch and mould the clay into a bowl shape, decorating them with glitter and sequins.  We also made a Diwali candle by exploring how to make drippy trails with PVA glue and then sprinkling with glitter.  We learned about Rama, Sita and the demon king, Ravanna to understand one reason why we light diva lamps during Diwali.  We had fun cleaning our home corner to welcome Lakshmi into our classroom for Diwali too!
