Diwali storytelling at the Hive

On Thursday 15th November, Year 3  had a super morning at the Hive, exploring the children's section and taking part in a Diwali storytelling workshop.

We were made to feel very welcome by Jane and Vanyer, who led our session.  The children enjoyed a variety of activities based on the Hindu story of Rama and Sita - this story is told during Diwali, the Festival of lights, in which good triumphs over evil.

The children took part in an interactive telling of the story and then made Diva lamps, Diwali cards and had their hands painted with Mehndi patterns - as is traditional during this festival.  

Their learning  continued back at school with food tasting, sweet making and the creating of beautifully coloured  Rangoli patterns.
