We have been learning all about the festival of Diwali, why it is celebrated and how it is celebrated. We learnt about the history of the festival through the story of Rama and Sita which led to Diwali being celebrated. We learnt about Diya lamps and how these are used in the festival of Diwali. We looked at the patterns and colours of Diya lamps and used this to help us create our own Diya lamp designs. We then developed our Art skills to sculpt and create our own Diya lamps using clay. We then decorated these using bright paints and sequins to make them colourful. Do you like our finished products?
