Hindu workshop provides Diwali delight

In anticipation of Diwali next month, Year 2 were lucky enough to have a fascinating Hindu workshop. Nabhi and his team told them all about the upcoming Diwali celebrations, described the history of Hinduism and how Hindus practise their religion. Children were given the opportunity to dress up as characters from ‘Rama and Sita’, one of the main stories of Diwali.
