Pre-School have enjoyed making Divas, experimenting with Rangoli Patterns and practicing Mendhi patterns. The children have also enjoyed learning all about the Festival of Light, Diwali, and how families prepare for and celebrate Diwali at home.
Understanding the world: 3 and 4 year olds will be learning to:
– Continue developing positive attitudes about the differences between people (discussing and recognising different religious festivals and their importance to people)
– Begin to make sense of their own life-story and family’s history (Sharing personal memories and traditions with others, and listening to the experiences of those who celebrate Diwali at home, and comparing how it is different or similar to festivals their own family celebrates).
