St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

This week Reception have been learning all about the Hindu Celebration of Diwali. We have watched videos and looked at photos of how Diwali is celebrated all over the world. We have learnt that it is known as the ‘Festival of lights’ so we have been involved in lots of activities linked to fireworks whilst developing our fine motor control. We decorated hands using Mehndi patterns and made a variety of Rangoli patterns using constructions materials and buttons. We have loved visiting the discovery table and looking at the Diwali artifacts. We hope you enjoy looking at our learning.
