Diwali at Talavera
Today we have been learning about the festival of Diwali, which is celebrated by some members of our community. We found out that there are some similarities with how Christmas is celebrated, such as cards and presents, decorations, family time, special meals and sweet treats. We also found out that people celebrating Diwali often make diva lamps, as Diwali is the 'Festival of Light', and make Rangoli patterns to decorate their homes. We had a go making cards, making candle holders using clay and making patterns using dyed rice.
