On Monday 14th November, Foundation Stage were very lucky to have a lady called Shilpa come and visit to talk about Diwali.
The children have been learning all about celebrations this term as part of our topic work and it was good to find out about different customs and traditions. Shilpa told us about the history behind why Diwali is celebrated, taught us some Hindu words, showed us some traditional artefacts and taught us how to sing two Diwali songs.
The photos show the children trying to perform some of the tricky actions! Afterwards, Shilpa stayed behind to help the children make their own Diya lamps out of playdough decorated with beads and helped them to decorate Rangoli patterns and design their own Mehndi hand patterns.
