Painting her Diwa lamp. 

Within  ‘People and Communities’ we have been learning  about Diwali - the festival of lights. We enjoyed listening to the story about Rama and Sita and how the village was filled with lights to guide them home.

Working hard to roll out the clay to create her Diwa lamp.

This Reception child was  very proud of her lantern. 

Carefully using his fine motor skills to pinch the clay and mould it into place   

We explored traditional decorations such as rangoli patterns, lanterns and Diwa lamps. We especially enjoyed creating our very own Diwa lamps out of clay.

During maths, Reception have been learning about  positional language. 






Here is a lovely park scene where Grace was able to say where the mouse, bee and dog were placed. 

“The mouse is under the tree.”
