YOUNGSTERS from Jellybabies Nursery and Pre-School have been learning about Diwali.

The children from the nursery, which is based at Longbridge Methodist Church, acted out the Diwali story and made rangoli patterns, which were drawn on door steps to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth.

The children all had the opportunity to try Indian food which they really enjoyed.

Staff said the children’s favourite activity was making their own clay lamps which also gave nursery workers the chance to talk to them about the dangers of fire and general fire safety.

The children also learnt new songs and rhymes about Bonfire Night and about how to stay safe around bonfires and fireworks.
