As part of our ‘Celebration’ topic, we have been learning about Diwali; the Hindu Festival of Light.
We took part in a workshop with Miss Helen; she taught us some dance moves and we were told the story of Diwali. We learnt all about Rama and Sita, Ravana the ten headed demon and Hanuman the monkey king! We all enjoyed trying on and dancing in some traditional clothes. We have looked at Diwali information books, read stories and watched videos.
In the classroom, we have designed our own Mehndi’s, lanterns, Rangoli patterns, shadow puppets and Diva lamps.
We have looked at Diwali information books, read stories and watched videos to find out more information.
