Celebrations and Festivals are the main topic around the Michael Faraday Nursery right now. We have picked the perfect time to be studying this theme, with so many different religious and cultural festivals being celebrated at this time of the year. Our focus for this week has been to learn all about Bonfire Night and why adults set off fireworks at this time of the year. The children have been hearing about the Guy Fawkes story and making model rockets.
With November 5th out of the way, our next major festival to celebrate in the Nursery will be Diwali. We are going to find out what special clothes are worn during this festival, and some of the food that is eaten as well. Our celebrations and festivals topic will conclude in the Nursery when we learn why Christians celebrate Christmas. The children will be making decorations and tasting seasonal food.
