Today we celebrated "Diwali". We learnt that the word Diwali means 'rows of lighted lamps'. It is known as the 'festival of lights' because houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps called 'diyas'. Diwali always falls some time between October and November, but the exact date varies each year as the Hindu calendar is based on the Moon. This year Diwali is on Sunday 12 November.
We then made our own lamps to celebrate.
We have introduced our new RE topic. We looked in our chatterbox and found items such as a photograph of a library, a cross, a Bible, and a scroll. We talked about how the Bible is a Holy text and is very special to Christians.
Yesterday we looked at why the Bible is a special text for Christians. We then shared our own favourite books we brought from home with our partners.
As a class we looked at these different Bibles. We looked at how they look different and the writing is different sizes but they are still split into two parts: the Old Testament and the New Testament.
