Year 1 were delighted to welcome Neil’s parents in class today.  Sarika and Deepak came to talk about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.  We learnt about Diwali being the festival of light.  The celebration is a joyful one that also celebrates the end of harvest. The children enjoyed learning about how families prepare their homes to celebrate. We were excited to watch how to make the light holders and see how Rangoli patterns are created.  It was a wonderful afternoon and we wish everyone a Happy Diwali.
