Event - Diwali Theme Day

4 November 2013

The school celebrated Diwali on Monday 4th November. It was a chance for us all to look at how another faith celebrates a significant celebration in their calendar.

We were all vertically grouped; some children from each class were in each group. The older children were fantastic at looking after the younger children. The day then comprised of a carousel of activities including drama, dance, writing and art.

Everyone enjoyed the day and it was a lovely start to our new term. Please come and look at our Diwali display outside the main office.
