Bonfire Night / Diwali
Reception were learning about the Hindu celebration of Diwali, the festival of lights. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and we learnt that fireworks are used to celebrate good over-coming bad.
We then learnt the history behind Guy Fawkes night. We thought about why the fireworks were significant for both celebrations, and we had so much fun creating our own firework art, using different materials. We also thought very hard about how to keep ourselves safe during Bonfire Night and we used our ideas to design our own safety poster. Using our ideas, our teachers put on a sparkler display for us.
