Diwali in Year 3

As part of our Hinduism topic in RE, some year 3 children took part in a Diwali lanterns workshop with artist Paul Smith from Festive Road. They worked hard to create beautiful illuminated diva lamps out of willow, in preparation for the Diwali Parade that took place in the town centre on 15th October. It was lovely to see so many children and families from Bridgewater, enjoying the wonderful procession.

We also celebrated Diwali in school by taking part in Rangoli art activities, some Bollywood dancing and learning about the story of Rama and Sita.

Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
