Diwali - November 2018

In Year R the children learnt about Diwali which is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains around the world and is known as the Festival of Light.  We found out about some of the customs and traditions associated with this festival and how it is celebrated.  The children made their own clay diva lamps which are used to decorate homes at this special time, representing the lamps which were lit in the story of Rama and Sita.  At the end of the week all the Year R children had their own Diwali celebration by lighting all the lamps in the hall.
