Special Events 2019-2020

 

Year 3: Diwali Assembly:

Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world.

Diwali, which for some also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness. 

The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word deepavali, meaning “rows of lighted lamps”.

Houses, shops and public places are decorated with small oil lamps called diyas. People also enjoy fireworks and sweets too, so it’s really popular with children.

Nativity Assembly:  Year 2 pupils performed a nativity play for the school and parents.  The performance was excellent and the singing was delightful.  

The word nativity comes from the latin word ‘natal’ which means birth (and is also where we get the word ‘native’ from).
