Diwali Day

During Diwali Day, we have looked at the story of Rama and Sita to help us explain why Hindus celebrate Diwali. We have Discussed the different traditions that people carry out as part of Diwali such as making rangoli patterns and lighting candles around the house.


We then compared the Hindu celebration of Diwali to the Christian celebration of Christmas by creating a table with similarities and differences of the two. 


To finish, We imagined we were school governors and were able to give reasons why children should and should not have time off school for Diwali.
