A festival of light

A local primary school hosted workshops to celebrate Diwali last term. At Broseley Primary School, pupils learnt about the Hindu festival and took part in a dance workshop. Diwali, also known as the festival of light, is a celebration of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.

The dance workshop recreated the important story of Rama and Sita using a variety of different dance styles. It is believed that on this day Rama returned to his people after 14 years of exile, during which he rescued Sita from the demon king, Ravana.

The Reception and Y1 classes created their own Rangoli patterns, while Reception made Diva lamps and got the chance to dress up in some traditional Hindu clothing.
