All of Year One have been enjoying learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali as part of their RE lessons.  They learnt that Diwali is the festival of light  and it is celebrated by lighting Diya lamps, giving presents and sweets and enjoying fireworks.  Rangoli patterns are created outside houses to bring luck and the children enjoyed colouring in a Rangoli pattern as part of a Diwali card.  The cards were both bright and colourful.   Furthermore, Year One learnt about the first ever Diwali  and enjoyed making Rama and Sita puppets  to retell this story.  This week has also seen the introduction of  a new role play area in the classrooms – a house decorated for Diwali.

Article 31 – We all have the right to take part in creative activities.
