India in Reception

What a time to learn about India with all our recent snow! It was nice to think of warmer climates at this time. Over the past few weeks we have been learning about colours of the world and where best to learn about that than India!

We have enjoyed a visit from Mrs Millington. She brought in clothes for us to dress up in, instruments to play, vegetables and spices for us to smell and spoke to us about different festivals.

We have learnt about the festival Holi, have made some splatter paint pictures, learnt how to say common phrases in Indian, decorated elephants, made rangoli patterns, learnt a Bollywood dance, made the Taj Mahl and so much more.

The children have enjoyed learning about traditions in India but have especially enjoyed dancing in our dance studio- showing off their dance moves!

We hope you enjoy looking at all the activities we have been doing.
