Diwali in Reception

Reception had lots of fun celebrating Diwali. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and learnt about why Diwali is such an important celebration for lots of people around the world. 

We learnt all about how people prepare for Diwali and prepared the classroom by making lots of decorations, including beautiful Rangoli patterns. We also used playdough to make our own diva lamps which we decorated using a selection of gems and beads.  

We ended the week by making our own traditional Diwali sweets. We worked together to follow the instructions carefully, ensuring that we added all of the right ingredients. They were delicious!
