This week we have been learning all about ‘Diwali’, the Hindu festival of light. We learnt all about the story of Rama and Sita, the monkey army and the ten headed demon. We retold the story using pictures and decided we wanted to write sentences all about the ten headed demon! We also learnt about how Diwali is celebrated by drawing mehndi patterns on our hands and creating colourful rangoli patterns. We created salt dough Diya lamps and decorated them in sparkly paints before lighting little tea lights. We were very lucky and a had a special visitor come into our school to teach us a special dance which retold the story of Rama and Sita. This was so much fun! Everyone concentrated so well and the performance at the end was fantastic!
