Learning about Diwali!

This week, we have been exploring the celebrations of Diwali. We have enjoyed looking at the beautiful Rangoli patterns as well as Diya Lamps and patterned lanterns. We learnt about the meaning of Diwali being the festival of light to signify light triumphing darkness and good triumphing over evil. We had a go at creating some Rangoli patterns of our own by using symmetrical patterns on filter paper.
