Children in our Oakmere Acorns Nursery have been learning about Diwali this week.
Diwali is the festival of lights and is celebrated all over the world. It takes place over 5 days (11th – 15th November this years) and is all about family, spirituality and community. Typical Diwali celebrations include fireworks, gift giving, food and family gatherings. It is one of the largest Hindu celebrations in the UK.
Our nursery children had lots of fun learning about the festival and created some beautiful Diwali themed paintings which can be seen below.
