This week in Pre-school we looked at the festival of Diwali. We started the week by making coloured rice. The children poured rice into food bags and then added a different food colouring to each bag. We then had great fun squeezing and shaking the bag until all the rice had changed colour. We left this to dry before placing it into our sensory tray to make Rangoli patterns. We also made Rangoli pictures on paper plates using glitter and sequins.
At carpet time this week, the children loved listening to Posy and Pip the super scooter. This taught us about how to be a good friend and to help each other when we feel sad. We looked at the pictures and thought about how the characters were feeling, and used a variety of vocabulary to describe our feelings.
