This half term, year 4 are looking at joy in various faiths. We have looked at how Hindus express joy through celebrating Diwali, the festival of light. Luckily, we have a few children who celebrate Diwali in the class and so we have had first-hand experiences of the celebrations and the joy that is expressed.
We will be continuing with Diwali this week, looking at Diya lamps and the significance of them.
Do you know the story of Rama and Sita? Why not ask one of the Year 4’s? They should know. It is a story of how good overcomes evil and darkness is overcome by light. And that is why light is so important at Diwali time.
