We have been learning and celebrating Diwali this week.
The children enjoyed making clay lamps and drawing mehndi designs. They also ate traditional Indian meals such as fish curry and rice followed by fruit cake and for tea they enjoyed an Indian buffet followed by Kheer pudding for tea.
We also had a visit from the grandparents of one of our Academy children. She told the children the story of Diwali, showed them traditional cards and clay lamps and the Diwali stencil which they made the patterns using colourful sand. The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed her visit.
