Diwali – Pre-school learning at Mornington

The children made Rangoli patterns from a choice of five designs, using colourful rice.  They looked at some books about Diwali and watched a short video.  During circle time, they lit real tea light candles and talked about safety around fire and fireworks.

The children remembered:

“It’s a type of festival”

“candles”

“fireworks”

“bubbles”

“colourful lights”

“people dress up”

“patterns”

“flowers”
