Diwali -The Hindu Festival of light

We have had a fabulous week learning all about Diwali.
We have loved dressing up in beautiful clothes and have loved acting out the story of Rama and Sita.

We have enjoyed exploring how Hanuman, the king of the monkeys, must have built a strong bridge to rescue princess Sita.

We have loved exploring patterns by looking at Rangoli patterns and have used peg boards and numicon beads to create patterns. We also made Rangoli patterns of our own.

We have loved mark making and measuring using real rice and all kinds of sparkly things!

We have made some beautiful Mendhi hand patterns and have loved painting our own patterns on our hands!
And coloured some lovely patterns.
We played a board game to try and rescue Sita from the island.

Wow! Such a busy but magical week......

  1. Sounds like you have learnt a lot about the festival of light and I have loved hearing the story of Rama and Sita from Miri-Anna,
