Festival of Lights
In celebration of Diwali, the children made colourful Rangoli patterns using collage and sponge painting on stencils. They look fantastic year 5- well done.
We also compared Diwali to the celebrations of other religious festivals for example Hanukkah and Christmas. We made dreidels, a Jewish spinning top game, and played these together.
Our celebration day was finished with the addition of our Christmas tree decorations to the school tree. The cross stitch patterns took some time (and patience) to complete but they are well worth the hard work and effort.
