Class 1 learn about Hinduism - Holi and Diwali

The class celebrated the festival of Holi on March 17th at the time when Hindus were celebtrating the festival across the world. We made the day into a special 'Holi' day where the children dressed up as Hindus at a wedding, splattered a life-size drawing of a person with colours and made coloured flowers which we put around our pretend bonfire then said prayers for the good things in our lives just as Hindus do! During our Literacy lesson we learnt the story of Prahlad and Holika which gave meaning how the festival originated.
