Making Diyas for Diwali

Last week we learnt about Diwali and made our own Diyas using clay. We always have play dough available to the children in the classroom so having the opportunity to handle and manipulate clay was quite an interesting change for the children but look at the wonderfully, unique Diyas that the children made and painted. Following on from this, we explored making models using plasticine. This was quite challenging as plasticine is so much harder to manipulate so required some perseverance. All good for developing the children’s fine motor control.




Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
