Year 3 – Diwali

Firstly we would like to wish anyone who celebrates, a Happy Diwali!

In Year 3 our topic in Religious Education is Hindu Festivals.

We have started by looking at the Festival of Diwali as it was on the 7th November.

Diwali lasts for 5 days and is the Festival of Light.

As part of our RE lesson we designed and began to make some Diva lamps.We have used clay and different tools to follow our paper designs.

We are looking forward to painting them once the clay has dried. Keep checking back to see our finished products.
