Year 2 have enjoyed finding out about the Hindu festival of Diwali and how it is celebrated across the world. The children made and decorated clay divas to help remember the story of Rama and Sita. They had a very industrious afternoon making lanterns, Diwali sweets and creating a card to send to family or a friend.
As Christmas approaches the children have been thinking about the true meaning of Christmas with the birth of Jesus. We have been reflecting on the meaning of giving gifts. Each child made a Christingle decorated with delicious treats and chatted with a partner about the symbolism of its parts. It was so hard not to sneak a tasty treat off the cocktail sticks. A true show of determination and will power!
A super way to end the term. WW
