Celebrating Diwali

19th October 2017
In our Reception Class, we have been celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali, the Festival of Light.
We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and made puppets of the characters to help us act out the main events.  We made our own clay diva lamps to light up the darkness.  We also dressed in traditional costume, made delicious sweet treats and enjoyed creating our own mehndi patterns.  Our classroom door is covered with our painted Rangoli patterns.
We wish Mrs Gupta (one of our teaching assistants) and her family a very happy Diwali!
