Everyone in Harcourt Terrace E.T.N.S learned about and celebrated Diwali with all of our friends. Have a look and see how everyone got on below:
In Second class the children spent the week learning about Diwali. They read the story of Rama and Sita and learned about Diyas. During Diwali homes are decorated with Diyas and the candle light symbolises goodness and light winning over darkness. We drew and decorated our own Diyas.
The next day we learned all about Rangoli Art and how during Diwali families decorate outside their home with coloured sand in beautiful patterns. We used dyed rice to create our own Rangoli Art on our classroom tables. We absolutely loved this and had so much fun!
In Siobhán, Tony, Ronnie and Jennifer’s classes the children had fun hearing the Diwali story, watching some lovely candle lights and creating some nice Artwork.
We would like to wish everyone a very happy Diwali and we hope that everyone enjoys the celebrations.
The Harcourt Terrace team.
