r.e: hinduism


This is a nice, relaxing activity to do with children when they are learning about Diwali.


This is a Year 1 class who I firstly spent time with, looking at images of Rangoli patterns and learning a little bit about symmetry.

The children then worked in pairs in the playground, to create their own patterns using chalks.


I asked the children to draw a large cross on the ground as a starting point, to draw a circle/diamond in the centre and then build their pattern by drawing shapes on the lines and then in-between.
