Celebrating Diwali in the Nursery

The nursery children had a wonderful day learning about Diwali.  We listened to a story about good overcoming evil and had diya lights to represent this.  We tasted lots of delicious Indian food including coconut barfi, samosa, ras malai, gulab jumun and halwa (sweetened carrot).  The children had a chance to see Indian tabla drums played and then had a go themselves.  We danced to bhangra music and made firework pictures.  What a busy and brilliant day!  Thank you to our parents for the food, diya`s, knowledge and advice.  We had a very good taste (literally!) of what Diwali is about
