We spent the last couple of days of this term celebrating Diwali. We were given a box of delicious homemade Diwali treats from one of our families. The children enjoyed using coloured rice and chalk to create Rangoli patterns, all having their own creative ideas of how to use the available resources. We lit candles and learnt about Diwali at story time, watching the story of Rama and Sita. Divas were made of salt dough – the children set the timer on the microwave to cook their creations before decorating them with paint and glitter.
We also said a sad farewell to Jodi and send her all our best wishes for the future. We’ll miss you Jodi!
