Llysfaen Diwali Celebrations!

On monday the children began celebrating diwali which is a religious holiday celebrated by sikhs and hindus. This holiday focuses on celebrating light and the banishing of dark spirits. The children were very excited to take part in these celebrations and learn all about diwali and similar celebrations and what these different celebrations mean to different religions. 


Year six have been celebrating diwali by creating their own rangoli patterns out of macaroni, brown and white rice, red and brown lentils and couscous. They were incredible and all of the children enjoyed taking part in it.


Year 4 have had a very busy start to the week celebrating Diwali. They have been making curry, doing henna and creating Rangoli patterns using coffee filters. They made the curry out of yummy ingredients including rice and vegetables. To use the henna they had to copy patterns and use a steady hand. The coffee filters were a hit and everyone had a smashing time!
