Year 1 explored what Advent means for catholics and what rituals are performed during this important religious time of preparation. We enjoyed making ‘christingles’ and finding out how catholics have a ‘christingle’ service for children in church to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
In Year 3 the children studied the Hindu festival of colour, Holi. We learned the ancient Indian tale of good prevailing over evil and explored the festival in modern day India. We used real Holi powder to create some art work. This proved to be very tricky and extremely messy. However, we learned lots about this tradition!
