Diwali Festival

On Thursday 19th October 2017, Columba spent the day celebrating Diwali.  We had lots of fun and learnt lots of new things.

  • We drew Diwali Rangoli patterns with chalk using our gross motor skills.
  • We created colourful firework pictures and learnt all about how Diwali is celebrated.
  • We used ICT to create a Diwali picture.
  • We listened to Indian music and created movement to music.
  • We made clay divas......this was very messy!
  • We re-wrote the story of Diwali with Sita and Rama.
