This week both Primary and Preparatory combined to learn about the festival of Diwali, a Hindu festival with lights.

The children developed skills learned from our previous drama lessons to retell the story of Rama and Sita. They discussed how Hindus light hundreds of small oil lamps. This is to commemorate the part of the story that describes oil lamps being placed outside people’s homes to light the way for Rama and Sita's homecoming. 

The children participated well in the drama and enjoyed the follow on activities such as close puzzles and word searches which helped reinforce their learning.
