Reception Diwali Visit

On Friday 3rd November Mr Balabasqer came to talk to the Reception children about celebrating Diwali with his family.

Diwali is a festival that is celebrated all over the world by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. Mr Balabasqer talked to us about the food that is eaten at this special time and the clothes that are worn. Hindus light diva lamps and enjoy fireworks which represent the light overcoming the darkness, good defeating evil.  We have made our own diva lamps and created Rangoli  patterns using coloured rice.
