Diwali Celebrations

This week, we have been learning all about Diwali in Reception. We have taken part in lots of activities including:


  • Reading the story of Rama and Sita
  • Making Rangoli patterns
  • Making clay Diya lamps and painting and decorating them
  • Decorating Mehndi patterns
  • Writing 'Happy Diwali' cards for friends and family
  • Tasting traditional Indian foods
  • Reading a variety of non-fiction books to find out more about how Diwali is celebrated


We really enjoyed learning about a different culture and traditions. Take a look at some of our activities below and ask us about our learning at home.
