Festivals of Light 2017

During the Autumn term, we have all been learning about three festivals of Light; The Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali, the Jewish festival of Hanukkah and the Christian festival of light - Christmas.
 
We had a fantastic afternoon celebrating these 3 different festivals of light.
 
  • We designed Mehndi patterns and made Diwa lamps that are used during the festival of Diwali.
 
  • We made a collage picture of the special menorah or Hannukkiah which is lit during Hanukkah to remember the miracle in the temple.
 
  • We also iced (and ate) delicious star biscuits to remind us of the guiding light of the star in the Christian Christmas story and the light that Jesus brought to the world.
