Exploring Diwali - Preschool News

Home » News » Exploring Diwali

Namaste Preschool,

This week we have been on an Indian adventure as we have explored the Hindu festival Diwali.

We followed Jessica's journey on Cbeebies and then prepared for our own Diwali celebrations.We listened to the story about Prince Rama and how he rescued his wife Sita from the ten headed demon Ravana. We found out that Diwali means a row of lighted lights and that lights are lit to show that good wins over evil. We decorated some small lamps called divas. People used these lamps to welcome home Rama and Sita. The pavements in India are decorated with rangoli patterns which bring in good luck for the year ahead. We made some colourful rangoli patterns using rice and petals of our own to bring good luck! We learnt that these patterns are symmetrical, we had a go at creating our own symmetrical patterns using numicon and shapes.

Over the week we have made delicious Indian chocolate sweets called coconut barfi. They were very sticky to roll into a ball but very tasty! We have also eaten poppadoms with mango chutney for our snack.

We have developed our physical skills we used a cricket bat to hit a ball and have used tweezers to pick up rice.

We read a story called ' The Wheels on the tuk-tuk'. We discussed how the children's journey was different to ours. For example, they paid with rupees instead of pounds.

What a wonderful week we have had,
Tara
