The theme for the month of November is ‘Farm Animals’.
Farm animals are bred for many purposes. Hens gives us eggs, cows &goats provide us with nutritious milk. Different breeds of sheep provide many kinds of wool fibers which are made in clothing. Horses are used as working animals, sport and leisure activities. Keeping our theme in mind we organized a series of fun filled activities to teach the children about animals, their dwellings sound they make, food that they eat and about their little ones.
Diwali was celebrated on new moon day after Dussehra. This is the festival of lights. The Hindus decorate their houses with lights. At night people worship “Laxmi” the goddess of wealth.
