Today, we learnt about the celebration of Diwali. We found out that Diwali is a five-day celebration with the main day being celebrated on Wednesday 7th November. It is a festival of light celebrated by Hindus and some other religions. The festival celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.

We were welcomed into the room and asked to lay a flower on the table to signal that we were acknowledging the festival of light.

After learning about Diwali we got to decorate our own glass jars using bright colours, stickers and gems. We had lots of fun putting the paint inside the jar and shaking it to make sure the paint covered all the glass.

We enjoyed learning about how another faith’s celebrations and really enjoyed being a part of the festival.
