Happy Diwali

The Hindu festival of Diwali is on Tuesday 13th November. It is a time of great rejoicing in the Hindu religion with new clothes, sweets and special food. Light, fireworks, fire and lamps are all very important in this festival of light.

There is a really useful 6 minute video on the BBC that gives a clear introduction to the day. It contains background information on Diwali which could be used in an assembly or in class to set the scene.

The TES have a whole selection of useful ideas and lesson Resources

Kids National Geographic has some lovely photographs

There are lots of ideas for things to do at the Diwali 2012 website.
