Celebrating Diwali - The Festival of Light

This week, the children have been learning about the Hindu Festival of Diwali. They were introduced to this important festival through hearing about the story of Rama and Sita - learning how good can overcome evil and  about a Hindu's belief that light will overcome darkness.

From clay Divas to colourful Rangoli patterns, the children have enjoyed the opportunity to immerse themselves in many of the traditions and past-times practised by children and their families all around the world, whilst they celebrate the Festival of Light.
