This week we have finished learning about the festival of lights (Diwali). The children enjoyed making and tasting coconut barfi, designed rangoli patterns with colouring pencils and felt tip pens then they made these patterns at the entrance to the class with chalks on the floor. They created even more rangoli patterns using coloured rice. The children also made diva lamps by moulding and shaping clay and finished by painting them in bright colours.
We even had a celebration in class - a child's birthday party. We sang "Happy Birthday" in English and Arabic and shared a huge Mickey Mouse birthday cake.
We are enjoying learning about festivals and celebrations.
