Year 1 Diwali Celebrations 2023

As part of our Diwali celebrations, Year 1 listened to the story of Rama and Sita and secured our understanding of the importance of Diwali and why it is celebrated. We learned that it is also known as the ‘festival of light’. We started the day learning a traditional dance and listened to traditional music in the hall with Mr Benton.

Later on, we made Diya lamps which symbolise the triumph of light over dark. They are lit to remember when Rama and Sita were returning home and followed the rows of lamps laid out for them.

We also learnt that rangoli patterns are thought to bring good luck. People make rangoli patterns at the entrance to their homes to welcome the goddess Lakshmi. We made our own patterns using a range of equipment and also used our printing skills to create a large scale rangoli pattern.
