Friday 20th November
This week we have been learning about the festival of Diwali in our "Sparkles and Stars" topic work. The children have listened really carefully to the story of Rama and Sita (and the 10-headed Ravana!), and were able to sequence and retell the story superbly. 
We also enjoyed finding out about the customs and traditions of Diwali, including visiting the temple, making Rangoli patterns, decorating hands with Mendhi patterns and giving sweets; and enjoyed having a go ourselves!
