We have been learning about 'celebrations' in Early Years, we talked about our experiences of Bonfire Night, had birthday parties for a couple of very lucky soft toys, enjoyed discovering about Diwali, and prepared for Christmas by making cards, decorated our tree and learned some Christmas songs.  


Our Nursery children liked looking at and talking about the Mendhi patterns and had a go at decorating some hands themselves.

In nursery, the children looked at the special little lamp holders associated with the celebration 'Divali'.  They used salt dough to make their own, decorating them and then taking them home with a tealight candle so that they could have their own little diva lamp. 

Birthdays were something the nursery children liked to talk about when they were thinking about celebrations.   The children talked about their own experiences.
