Room 11 learn about and celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Light.

The children chopped almonds, smashed cardamon, slightly roasted semolina and coconut together, made syrup from sugar and water, melted ghee and mixed it together in a bowl with some raisins. Once the mix had cooled they rolled them into balls, ready to eat! A big thank you to Pinky Jadav for all her help in making our ladoo sweets.

Later on everyone participated in making a Rangoli flower pattern using blossoms we gathered.
When  the pattern was finished we took it outside so the wind could blow the flower petals away. It was a lovely way to finish our learning about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light, which celebrates good triumphing over evil.
