Making Diva Lamps

This week, in Miss Powley’s class, we have been learning all about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We have been very busy creating Rangoli patterns using 2D shapes, Mehndi designs and have also shared the story of Rama and Sita.

Today, we used white clay to create and mould our very own Diva Lamps. We used clay tools and sequins to decorate our beautiful lamps. Once they had dried, we then lit candles to celebrate the festival of light!

We discussed what we liked about each other’s lamps and shared praise. We then explored traditional Bhangra dancing – a wonderful time was had by all!
