Divali

 We have really enjoyed learning about the festival of Divali and we would like to share our work with you.  Hindus all over the world celebrate the special festival of Divali.
This year it began on November 1st.

 In our class we studied the different versions of the story of Rama and Sita and then we wrote our own.  We would like to share one of them with you.  Our story was written by Kim and Catherine.  This is how we started:-

We began by putting ourselves into small groups.  We sat together and decided each person's role. 

Then we began to make our puppets

We cut out our puppets carefully

 

 

We coloured them in.

 

We worked together as a team.

 

We added finishing touches to our puppets, using glitter and sequins.

 

Then we began to design the backgrounds.

 

When our backgrounds were ready, we began to practice our plays.

We worked well together.

 

Each team chose a narrator.
