RE - Year 1
Hinduism: Diwali
Autumn 1 - 2022
This term we have been learning about Diwali.

We created some Rangoli patterns.
Rangoli patterns are made with bright colours to make the front of the house look inviting for the Gods to visit.
This is the story of Rama and Sita. It is a traditional tale which is often told during Diwali.
The main characters in this story were Ravana, Rama, Sita and Hanuman.
We role played the part of the story where Rama has to leave Sita alone in the forest, so he draws a special ring around Sita to keep her safe. He tells her not to move from this circle.
But Sita spots a poor man begging for some water who comes up to the circle...
Suddenly the poor man is revealed to be the evil demon king Ravana! He captures Sita and takes her to his island of Lanka.
