Over the last couple of weeks, some year groups have been learning about the festival of Diwali, as part of our engaging RE curriculum; the festival itself was celebrated on Thursday 4th November. 

The photographs show some examples of the learning that has been taking place in our Nursery, Reception and Year 6 classrooms, where pupils have enjoyed creating beautiful Rangoli Patterns, making Divas (the lights that families put in their windows) designing Mehndi patterns and creating and sampling traditional foods. 

As part of these engaging lessons, pupils have learnt the importance of the celebration and the traditions associated with this wonderful festival of light.
