Diwali celebrations October 2017
Early Years have enjoyed celebrating Diwali, the Festival of Lights, today. We have heard the story of Rama and Sita and learnt all about how Hindus celebrate with Divas, fireworks, flowers, dancing and giving money. We also watched some videos from the weekend of the Diwali festival and parade through Northampton town centre. The children were particularly impressed with the huge Rama and Sita models.
Mrs Popat came to talk to us about how she celebrates with her family. She wore a beautiful dress and taught us some dances to some traditional music. Thank you Mrs Popat, and well done Vikings and Romans for your lovely dancing! Happy Diwali!
