Happy Diwali - Preschool

Home » News » Happy Diwali - Preschool

Today we have been on an Indian adventure! We have had a wonderful day learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali.

We have eaten Indian food for snack, we tried warm naan bread, poppadom and mango chutney — it was all delicious! We listened to the story about Prince Rama and how he had to rescue his wife Sita from the demon Ravana. Sita wore a beautiful bindi on her forehead and we had one of our own! After lunch we listened to some traditional Indian music and tried some Bollywood dancing.

We made delicious Indian chocolate sweets called barfi. They were very sticky to roll into a ball but very tasty! Diwali is a festival of lights and the pavements in India are decorated with rangoli patterns which bring in good luck for the year ahead. We made some colourful rangoli patterns of our own to being us some good luck! We learnt that these patterns are symmetrical, we had a go at creating our own symmetrical patterns using numicon and shapes.

We decorated some small lamps called diva lamps which we made earlier on in the week. We used bright paint and glitter to make them as vibrant as possible — people used these lamps to welcome home Rama and Sita.

I 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.

Thank you for a great day, Happy Diwali!
