Photos - Diwali - Rangoli Patterns

This week class three have been learning all about the Hindu festival of lights - Diwali. We have been finding out about the traditions of the festival and have enjoyed the story of Rama and Sita. We have also been using our maths skills to create symmetrical 'rangoli' patterns, which Hindus create to invite Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, into their homes. We recreated our designs on our playground and we think they look lovely!
