Celebration Exploration with 2P

Term 4, 2021 In 2P students have been learning about family celebrations and traditions. A celebration of interest is Diwali which is considered a 'festival of light'. During Diwali, families come together to celebrate with food, music and dance. Homes are often decorated with lanterns, Rangoli and Diya lamps. In 2P, students made their own Diya lamp using clay and tools to make patterns. The final step was to paint their Diya lamp and place flowers and a tealight candle on the inside. This learning is special as students Arya and Rishiraj celebrate Diwali with their families. This meant we could learn from their experiences and broaden our knowledge in the classroom.
