This week, all of P1 learned about Diwali with Mrs Tekkatte – the Hindu festival of lights. Diwali is celebrating the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. It is traditionally marked with the lighting of many lights (divas), rangoli patterns to decorate houses and by the exchange of sweets and food. Fireworks light up the skies and streets in India at this time of year, much like our Bonfire Night.
The Primary 1s learned about the Diwali story, and made rangoli patterns out of playdough and various lentils.
