Topic: Festival of Light


As part of learning about different religions and festivals from around the world, on Wednesday 7th November the children of Primary learned the story of the Hindu festival 'Festival of Light'.

The children were so curious about the story of Diwali, learning about Rama and Sita and the evil demon king Ravana who had twenty arms and ten heads, that many of them with a little help wrote their own short story about Diwali.

In the afternoon the children loved making a special Diwali light called 'diya' out of clay and decorated it with lots of colourful mosaics.

Happy Diwali!
