Learning about Hinduism in Junior Infants

Junior Infants have been learning all about Hinduism over the past number of weeks. The children decorated Rangoli Patterns which can be seen on the windows of our classrooms. Hindus make these patterns on their doorsteps to welcome people into their homes during Diwali. We also made Diva Lamps in our Art lesson. Hindus place these lamps around their homes during Diwali as Diwali is known as the “Festival of Lights”. It also brings good luck to you and your home.

The children also read the story about Rama and Sita which explains how Diwali began. Ask the children to tell you about the story and the fun activities we did based on the story.

Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing all of you on Monday!! 🙂 🙂
