Rangoli Patterns 

Year 1 have been learning about Diwali (in July!) and we have been creating collage Diwali cards, making diwas with clay and designing rangoli patterns.

Here are some images of the rangoli patterns which the children created out in the playground on a particularly hot July afternoon, using chalks. Beforehand, we looked at a variety of rangoli patterns on the smartboard and learnt a little about symmetry.

I got the children to draw a large cross on the ground as a starting point, to draw a circle/diamond in the centre and then build their pattern by drawing shapes on the lines and then in-between.
