Diwali - Diva Lamps

The Horses have been celebrating Diwali the festival of light and making diva lamps. The children read the story of Diwali and looked at why diva lamps made and lit. The children then used clay to make their own diva lamps. Using their hands to model and manipulate the clay into a pot like shape. The children looked at different types of diva lamps and made their own interpretation's. Once the clay had dried the children decorated their lamps with bright colours like the examples they had seen. The children lit their lamps and read the story of Rama and Sita.
