On Thursday 4th November, the school explored the Hindu festival of Diwali. Throughout the day, the children learnt about Diwali, created rangoli patterns and listened to the Hindu story of Rama and Sita. The children were also visited by different adults (both parents and members of staff) who are Hindu and celebrate Diwali. During the discussion, the children learnt about why Diwali is celebrated and why it is an important religious festival. The children had a fantastic day and were incredibly excited and curious to learn about Diwali. They were then given the opportunity to ask some questions about Diwali. We would like to thank all the people who participated in Diwali and hope everyone has a happy Diwali!
Below, there are some photos showing the different Diwali experiences the children had.
