On Friday 13th November the children at Hillside took part in a Diwali focus day. Each child from Nursery to Y6 had opportunities to learn about this Hindu Festival of light. Each child in school looked at the origin story of Rama and Sita, took part in some delicious Indian food tasting (Which our ks2 children created bar charts for the most loved food in their classes), wore traditional Indian clothing and created their own Rangoli sand pictures. Every child was engaged and commented throughout the day on their focus and excitement of the focus day.
They are already asking about our next focus day for Chinese New Year.
