Makar Sankranti marks the arrival of the spring season and is one of the auspicious festivals celebrated in India. This festival is celebrated on 14th or 15th January every year. The students of the pre primary section were explained that the festivities associated with Makar Sankranti are known by different names such as Lohri in North India and Pongal in South India.
The students were immersed in the festive spirit by doing Makar Sankranti drawing with different shapes. They drew the sun as this festival celebrates the solar cycle. They also drew warli figures showing a boy and girl flying kites, which is an integral part of this festival. Sugarcane crops were also drawn as it is the celebration of the harvest festival.
The objective of this drawing was to create awareness about the different aspects of this festival as well as for development of fine motor skills and recapitulation of different shapes. The students were told that this festival of spreading prosperity, joy and togetherness is celebrated by relishing sweets made with sesame seeds and jaggery.
The Sr.KG Section conducted a kite making activity on 13th January 2022.
To celebrate the festival of Makar Sankranti, the students of Sr KG made colourful and vibrant kites. They pasted a diamond shaped and triangular shaped cut-out and also a colourful streamer to make a kite. Children enjoyed singing the kite rhyme holding the lovely vibrant kites made by them.
