Robins and Chaffinches celebrate Holi – the Festival Of Colours

This half term Year 1 and 2 are celebrating!

The celebrations started straight away when we came back to school by learning about Shrove Tuesday, its origins and traditions. The pancakes that we made were delicious! We then spent two weeks finding out about Mardi Gras and learning about how it is celebrated around the world.

This week, Robins and Chaffinches have been learning about the Hindu celebration of Holi. This spring festival, also known as the festival of colour, was celebrated world wide and in our playground on March 13th this year. The children experimented with Holi paints and worked collaboratively to create some super pieces of art work.

The highlight however had to be the throwing of special holi paint, a hindu tradition where children are allowed to play tricks and throw paint at their teachers.

Lots of fun, amazing artwork and some very colourful teachers!
