Art & D & T – Reception – Diwali

In Reception class we talked about the Hindu festival of light known as  Diwali. One of the children went to the Victoria and Albert Museum for a Diva lamp workshop. She brought in her lamp and told the class all about it.  This inspired some of the class to make their own Diva lamps. The children made the playdough. Then they looked at the shape of a real Diva lamp and manipulated the dough to make their own lamps .Once the dough dried it was painted in bright colours and covered in PVA glue.
