This week the conkers and little acorns have been learning about the Hindu festival ‘Diwali’ the festival of light. The children have been doing many different activities to celebrate this festival, the children have squashed and formed clay into a thumb pot and shaped a spout to make Diva Candle holders, they then had to decorate them with sequins and buttons which all the children enjoyed.

The children also got to make their own Rangoli designs using different colour sand, the children used lots of different colours to make the brightest picture.

Have a look at the fabulous designs the children made!
