During religion this week we looked at the celebration of Diwali. We read the Rama and Sita story and discussed the festival of Diwali.
We learnt that Diwali is a festival of lights and Hindus celebrate it with joy. During this festival, people light up their houses and shops with Diyas (small cup-shaped oil lamp made of baked clay). They worship the Lord Ganesha for welfare and prosperity and Goddess Lakshmi for wealth and wisdom.
We made our own Diya lamps out of clay and decorated them.
