Class 8 - Diwali day

We held our first RE day of the term this week, focusing on Diwali, the festival of light. We started the day by making some date, almond and coconut sweets and some mango lassi. We then completed some reading comprehension based around a family’s day celebrating Diwali.


After lunch it was another practical lesson; creating Diva lamps. Pupils used colourful paint, glitter and jewels to decorate their clay lamps. We then looked at the story of Rama and Sita, with pupils completing some excellent work describing the main characters.
