Today we celebrated Diwali. During the week, we have been learning about Diwali - the festival of light. We had lots of fun doing lots of Diwali activities.
We designed a Diya lamp. We are going to make our own lamp out of clay in school.
We danced outside to traditional music that is listened to during Diwali.
We made Rangoli patterns outside. We used paint and water. First of all, we coloured in a design that was drawn on the ground. As we were painting, we discovered that our yard had some patterns that would be perfect for designing our own Rangoli pattern. We used the outlines to help us carefully paint a colourful pattern. Once we were finished painting, we did a great job of tidying too.
We had a great time trying some traditional foods that are eaten during Diwali feasts. We tried rice, spiced potatoes, naan bread and even some desserts called rassomalai and gulabjam.
We created firework paintings because fireworks are set off during the festival of Diwali.
Happy Diwali everybody!
