Retelling the Story of Diwali
On Friday, we had an RE day based around the festival of Diwali. We began the day with some calming music and we looked at the symbols of Diwali. Then we identified how Hindus and Sikhs celebrate Diwali in different ways. We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita, through watching videos, ordering the story and acting it out. Then we retold the story of Diwali through writing. In the afternoon, we looked at the significance of Rangoli patterns and designed our own.
