Yesterday in nursery, the children celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights.
Throughout the day, the children dressed up in traditional dress, they read the story of Rama and Sita (which their friend Siddartha brought in to share with them)
The staff made beautiful patterns on the children’s hands and they learnt how to do traditional dancing.
Busy Bees made Fire cracker pictures, using leaves and spoke to the children about the celebrations that take place over Diwali.
Bumbles made Lanterns and all three rooms lit candles to represent Diyas which are traditionally placed around the home.
All the children were keen to tell their parents/carers about the day they had and enjoyed celebrating Diwali with their friends.
