Celebrating Diwali

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.


  1. I think that celebrating different people for their different cultures, tradions and religions is a great way to find out more about that country and it's relegions. (Especially when you get to dress up and eat food from that country)
