We began the morning listening to the story of Rama and Sita and finding out why Diwali is celebrated.  Over the course of the day we all had a try at four different activities:  Making coconut barfi sweets; Indian dancing; making clay diva lamps and exploring Hindu artefacts.  At the end of the day everyone showed their parents around to see what we had been learning about.  One of the favourite parts was watching a video of the Indian dancing performance.  Asmitha (Y2) and her family very kindly made Diwali sweets for everyone to take home – thank you!
