Diwali

We have been learning about the Diwali. This is the festival of lights. Nikhil, Roma, Ananyaa and Anaya have been telling us how they celebrate Diwali. They wore their special clothes to show us what they wore at their family celebrations.

 

Hindu and Sikh people celebrate this festival with clay lamps called divas and lots of fireworks! They are remembering the return of Rama and Sita after Rama rescued Sita from the 10 headed demon king, Ravannah.

 

We made Rangoli patterns from sand and mirror work Diwali cards. We learnt the story of Rama and Sita and acted it out with some Indian puppets and dressing up ourselves as the characters in the story. We made mendhi patterns using DAZZLE in our ICT lesson.
