We have loved learning about Holi: The Festival of colour! Holi is a Hindu festival which celebrates spring, love and new life.

We have been on a journey this week through our sensory story. We loved the smell of the ‘bonfire’, feeling the confetti falling from the sky and looking at all the bright colours.

We have also been exploring our topic throughout different lessons in class. We have made our own Rangoli patterns in messy art and designed patterns using our hands and feet in bright coloured sand.

During water play our classroom was transformed into an amazing rainforest! We could hear the birds singing in the trees, feel the cool water on our hands and the wind in our faces! We could even smell pine trees and a sweet smell of oranges around class!

Whilst we have been exploring and enjoying all our sensory experiences we have still continued to work hard on our physical skills; sitting in a range of positions; independently and supported, on a bench, in a corner seat, over a wedge and in our standing frames!

After all that hard work we have finished off our week with a nice tranquil spa! We loved smelling the relaxing lavender, having our hands and feet massaged and relaxing with our friends after another busy week in class!
