Acorns enjoying the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
What better way to brighten dark, winter days Acorns! This week we explored the Hindu festival of light.
Diwali is celebrated as a five-day New Year festival; it symbolises the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness and new beginnings.
Acorns learnt about planning for this celebration, including special roles the children may have, such as making rangoli patterns and making lanterns.
Children learnt and incorporated Indian Dance mudras (hand gestures) in their dance movements to celebrate Diwali.
Great learning Acorns!
