During the week of 12th November, we have been finding out about Diwali. On Tuesday, Mrs Deshpande came in to tell Mondrian Class how her family celebrate the festival. She showed the children some lanterns and traditional clothes. Then on Wednesday, Mrs Saravanabavan spoke to both classes about Diwali. She talked about Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Lord Ganesh. She also showed the children a traditional dance. During the week, the children all participated in retelling the story of Rama and Sita and explored drawing Rangoli designs outside using chalk.
