Hindu Winter Festival

Makar Sankranti is a Hindu festival which is directly related to deity Surya. Every year in January the coming together for this event marks the first day of sun’s transit into the Makara, marking the end of the Winter month and the start of longer days.

Last week, Little Learners Nursery children have been learning about this celebrated event which occurred yesterday, Sunday 14th January 2018.

By all children participating in the colouring of pictures and learning about the Hindu religion, this gives the opportunity for children to celebrate recognise differences in each other and celebrate diversity within our nursery and community which makes us the very special and unique individuals we are.
