World Book Day

Nursery children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day. They all came to school dressed up as a character from a book by our class author, Eric Carle. Our favourite stories by Eric Carle are “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Bad-Tempered Ladybird”. They have been printing their own pictures of ladybirds.

Diwali

Nursery children have been learning about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. They have all made their own diva lamps which are used to signify the triumph of good over evil in the story of Rama and Sita. The children loved listening to the story of Prince Rama rescuing Sita from the evil king Ravana.

Diva lamps

Step 1 – we used clay to make the small lamps.

Step 2 – we painted the clay lamps.

Step 3 – we decorated the lamps with glitter and then varnished them.

Step 4 – we placed tea lights in the divas.
