What a fantastic week FS2 have had this week celebrating Diwali; The Festival of Light.
We have learnt the story of Diwali.
In Class we have made Rangoli designs in the dough, we have made cards and lanterns and decorated biscuits.
On Monday Miss Kitchen decorated our hands with Mehndi, using henna to create the designs.
All week we have been painting traditional diya lamps, they came all the way from India!
On Thursday Yashvi's mum came in to celebrate Diwali with us.
She re-told us the story of Diwali and brought some traditional Indian sweets for us to try but our most favourite part of the afternoon was dressing up in the traditional Indian clothes that she brought in for us. We didn't want to take them off! The girls loved the shiny mirrors and sparkly sequins on the skirts. Here are some photo's of us dressing up.
Mrs Cameron enjoyed dressing up too. Here she is with Meika wearing a traditional sari made from pure silk.
We are very grateful to Yashvi's mum for coming in to FS2 to teach us about different aspects of Diwali. She really made the week for us and we got to experience so many new things. Thank you!
