This Autumn Term for Nursery has been very busy!

During Autumn Hindu's celebrate one of their biggest festivals, Diwali - The Festival of Light. Nursery have been learning all about this exciting festival and have been using their creative skills to decorate the nursery in ready for our Diwali celebration.   

Diwali Week

  • We have made some beautiful Rangoli patterns to decorate our nursery, ready for the Diwali celebration.
  • We have to be very careful when using scissors!
  • We even made some Rangoli patterns on the ipads and printed them out.
  • Diwali is a celebration of light so we made some Diva's.
  • They will look beautiful when they are all lit. They will do a good job guiding Rama and Sita home.
  • We made some traditional Indian sweets. We had to follow the recipe carefully!
  • Careful!
  • Mix it up well.
  • It got very sticky and tough to stir, its good to help each other!

  • We all had a wonderful Indian banquet.
  • It tasted really good!
  • Our Diva's lit up our banquet beautifully.
