We kick started Term 2 with our very own Diwali Day Celebration.
We had such an amazing, fun-filled day, jam-packed with super activities based on India and Diwali. We painted our very own Diya lamps, cooked a tasty curry (followed by a banquet where we could eat what we had made!), performed the story of Rama and Sita and finally ended the day with some Bollywood dancing! This was all whilst we were dressed in our very own Indian themed outfits.
This term we are learning all about India. We have begun to discuss India’s annual ‘Festival of Light’ Diwali and have linked this to our Art project. We have studied Rangoli patterns and how they are used to celebrate Diwali. We had a go at creating our own, and then recreated them on a large scale on the playground with chalk! We then drew some Indian animals and filled them with beautiful Rangoli patterns to create our very own Indian inspired artwork.
