We have been learning about the Festival of Lights , Diwali. We listened to the story of Diwali, and how the origins of the Diyva lamp started with the story of Rama and Sita.
The children made their own Diyva lamps out of clay and coloured in Rangoli patterns. Together we tasted some Burfi, a milk based sweet from the Indian subcontinent.
The children enjoyed watching how Hindu children prepared for the celebrations in their homes with special food, decorations and special clothes.
