Diwali is the Hindu 'festival of lights' which celebrates the New Year. This year Diwali fell on the same day as Bonfire Night. Silver Birch and Willow class had a lovely time finding out all about Diwali with Mrs Patel. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita which explains the origins of Diwali, we also looked at some special clothes that might be worn for the celebrations and were even lucky enough to eat some Indian snacks.
