Week 2 - 9th November 2020

This week, the children have really loved learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali. They enjoyed watching the story of Rama and Sita and finding out about what Hindu people do to celebrate.

The Hindu Story of Rama and Sita

Part of the Diwali celebrations involves sharing a huge feast with families. We have sampled some typical Indian foods, such as Naan bread and popadoms. The children were really good at remembering to wash their hands before eating their special Diwali snack each day.
Cleaning and tidying is a big part of Diwali as Hindus get ready to welcome guests into their homes. Friends and family come to visit and Hindu people believe that the godess Lakshmi visits clean homes. The children have spent the week making the role play corner look nice! They have also enjoyed making Happy Diwali cards.
The children have found out about rangoli patterns which are believed to bring good luck. People make rangoli patterns at the entrance to their homes to welcome the goddess Lakshmi. Rangoli patterns are made out of different things, such as coloured rice, coloured powder and flower petals. Some children had a go at using numicon to make rangoli patterns.
The chldren have enjoyed colouring in rangoli patterns and pictures of characters from the story of Rama and Sita. They have been working hard on using the correct pencil grip as well as practising writing their names on their pictures.
