Diwali celebrations

Our belated Diwali celebrations brought a joyous end to our first week back after the half-term break. Boys (and Pre-School girls of course!) looked very festive in their own clothes regardless of whether they wore traditional Indian clothes or not. Each classroom was a riot of colour!

Lunch was followed by everyone being offered jalebi for pudding and it was heartening to see boys who were unfamiliar with this sweet give it a try. In the afternoon, the whole school got the opportunity to express their artistic and creative side. Pre-School, Reception, Years 1 and 2 took part in a ‘Best Colour Scheme Competition’. They brought Miss Raduca’s hand-drawn illustration of Lord Rama and Sita to life through colour.
Years 3,4,5 and 6 had the opportunity to experience the traditional manner in which Rangoli Art is created; they drew large-scale Rangoli designs  on the floor. Ms Bourne and Mr Morarji definitely had their work cut out for them in judging the winner and runner-up for each KS2 year group; everyone’s work was beautiful!
Many thanks go to all staff who helped make the day such a success, and of course to the children too who always display the spirit of sharing with each other; it’s what makes BPS the very special place it is.
