Diwali 7th November onwards

We did lots of exciting activities all week to celebrate Diwali. We chalked rangoli patterns on the floor, made lanterns, learnt about mehndi patterns and drew around our own hands to decorate them. We also read lots of stories and watched the ‘Rama and Sita’ story on the big screen. The babies decorated a pine cone with glitter to take home as a Diwali gift.

We were also lucky that a parent brought in some traditional snacks for us to try.

School leavers party – 1st August 2018

Today we celebrated our school leavers with a party just for them. It was an opportunity for them to say one last goodbye to their friends before they embark on their school journey. It was also a chance for their parents to chat about their own thoughts on the move to school, and munch on cake!!! We dance, played, danced, ate lots of yummy food, used props for selfies and really celebrated our time as a Jolly Giraffe.
