5th November 2021

On Thursday 4th November 2021, Year 1 celebrated Diwali!

We learnt all about the story of Diwali and how it is celebrated. We learnt that Diwali is known as the 'festival of lights' because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps called 'diyas'. We then created our own diyas out of clay. After this, we learnt that many Hindus create bright and colourful designs to welcome the goddess Lakshmi into their homes. We created our own rangoli patterns out of card and turned them into window decorations as well as using coloured rice to explore different patterns.

We had a brilliant afternoon and learnt lots about this wonderful celebration.
