What a lovely time we had in school today as we held our special Diwali celebrations. Mr Lamorte led our assemblies for the children and it was a delight to see them all looking so fantastic in their home / party clothes. They certainly did look very bright and sparkly, perfect for Diwali!
Year 1 did a great job telling us all about Diwali sharing their rangoli patterns and the divas they had made. They also beautifully told us the story of Rama and Sita through rhyme and song. Everyone really enjoyed what they saw and it was lovely to see so many Y1 parents enjoy watching their children perform.
Reena from Bollywood Dreams played an important part in our Diwali assembly where she shared with us a lovely dance that made everyone smile and jig! It was a wonderful performance and really made our assembly feel very special. Thank you Reena!
We sang Diwali songs and even looked at the lovely Diwali cards the children in Reception had made.
Thank you to all the parents who commented on what a lovely assembly it was, as it is always great to get some positive feedback. We agree that the children were great!
In the afternoon the children enjoyed celebrating Diwali in their classrooms. There was food, music, dancing, and lots and lots of smiles!! What a lovely day!
