Nursery have been learning all about the Hindu festival of Diwali in RE this week.  We have learnt that it is also called 'The Festival of Light'.We have read about the story of Rama and Sita which explains why Diwali is celebrated.  Ask your child to retell the story?  We have also explored how Hindus celebrate with special food, clothes, rangoli patterns, fireworks and candles.  The children used clay to make their own 'Diva Lamp'. Hindus use Diva lamps to put candles in and these are lit in their homes throughout the festival.
