In Class 4, we have been learning about how Hindus celebrate Diwali. We enjoyed our own Diwali celebration: making Diwa lamps out of clay, designing Rangoli patterns using soft pastels and painting Mendhi (henna) designs. We even used chocolate writing icing to replicate using tubes of henna to draw on our own hands.
“Hindus put Rangoli patterns on the mat outside their front door to attract good fortune.” – Harry
“Hindus need to tidy their house before they celebrate Diwali.” – Hope
“Hindus draw henna tattoos on their hands for the celebration of Diwali.” – Oliver and Henry.
