Diwali is the Festival of Lights and is celebrated all over the world and in India.
The children learnt the story of Rama and Sita and performed a little play for the school assembly. Our visit to the temple in Neasden was linked to Diwali celebration as well.
Elementary 2 also made samosas with Miss Hiroe, learning about food and culture from India.
We all learnt PSHE concepts of togetherness and forgiveness.
The festival ushers in a period of merriment – a time to revel in the company of loved ones, dress up in finery and gorge on delicious dishes prepared for the event.
