This week we celebrated the Hindu festival of Holi. It is a Spring festival, welcoming in the new season. The Holi story is one of the triumph of good over evil and Hindus wear colourful clothes and have “colour fights”! We didn’t do that bit!
In class, we made Holi cards using an icing-sugar mixture, made Diva lamps using salt dough, created flowers from tissue paper and painted some rangoli patterns on our hands! We also had a fabulous dance workshop with Chloe, who taught us a classical Indian dance.
Thank you to all the parents that came in to share our afternoon with us.
