Year 2 enjoyed a visit from a Year 2 mum who told them all about the Hindu festival of Diwali and the girls enjoyed making diva lamps. Hindus decorate their houses and temples with these little lamps.
In Year 3 the girls learnt that the festival of Diwali is dedicated to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and they made beautiful rangoli patterns out of coloured sand. Rangolis are beautiful patterns which people create on doorsteps during the festival to welcome the goddess Lakshmi, as well as family and friends, into their homes. They are brightly decorated to reflect the joy at this time of the year.
