Autumn is a colourful time of the year, when not only are we lucky to be able to observe our beautiful surroundings, but it is the beginning of the Festival season.
Historically we have been very fortunate to have been able to visit St Peter's church, to offer our gifts of packets, tins of food and essentials. These have then been delivered to the Birmingham City Mission for distribution to those families needing support. This year due to the pandemic, we have not been able to visit the church but we have been able to donate to the mission along with the school.
We have been finding out about Diwali the Festival of Light and how this is celebrated around the world. The children have learnt what happens on each day of Diwali and added greater depth to their learning by participating in activities and experiences such as creating their own Rangoli patterns and making celebration cards wishing friends and family a 'Happy Diwali'.
