Early Years Diwali Celebrations

Early Years children enjoyed celebrating the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. Some of our parents kindly gave up their time to share the story of Rama and Sita, one of the most important stories from Hinduism. They also explained how the festival of light is celebrated by millions of people around the world.

Children used clay to make diva lamps then painted them with lots of bright colours. Then, they added glitter and jewels to make them sparkle. Early Years children also enjoyed using chalk to create colourful Rangoli patterns on the playground.
