RANGOLI PATTERNS

This is a nice, relaxing activity to do with children when they are learning about Diwali.

I firstly spent time looking at images of Rangoli patterns and learning a little bit about symmetry with this Year 1 class.

The children then worked in pairs in the playground, to create their own patterns using chalks.

I asked 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 up by drawing shapes on and in-between the lines.
