As you are likely aware, Year 6 have been studying India this half term, using Madhur Jaffrey’s Seasons of Splendour (Tales of India) to guide our learning.
Linked to this, we have looked at many Hindu festivals, and planned to mark Holi on Monday.
I had asked the children to come to school dressed in bright colours as this festival is known as the Festival of Colours and often Hindus throw paint and powders all over each other – it is a very colourful festival.
Instead, to ensure we mark this festival appropriately, I would like the children to come in their uniform, bringing their bright things with them. We will then change into the colours after we have completed our morning activity involving paint (but not thrown onto clothes!)
