Early Years Diwali Stick Dance

8th November 2016
Each week in the Early Years Unit we are learning about a different Autumn Festival. Last week was Diwali. We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita, made Diva lamps, decorated Mehndi hands, created rangoli patterns and made coconut barfi sweet treats.
 
A traditional Diwali dance involves sticks, we watched different videos and then had a go at making up our own. The children all chose different ways of moving with the sticks and then we put them altogether in a dance.
 
Watch the dance below to see how we got on......
