They were feeling so curious by the end of the topic, that they agreed to take part in a taste test, sampling some traditional Indian naan, spices, daal, chai tea and saffron cookies.  Well done R6 on being so adventurous and open minded 😊 Finally, to celebrate all of their fantastic learning, and to mark Diwali, they made beautiful candle holders  as seen below, and here!

They will be making forecasts, spotting weather patterns, and might even set up...
