Our topic this term was Festivals. Which was a religious education based topic. Through this topic we explored the different types of religious festivals that are celebrated around the world. We explored why different religions hold these festivals and the meanings behind them. We looked at the similarities and differences of these festivals, and the festivals that we celebrate. We also discussed how it is important to respect other people’s cultures and beliefs, even though they may not be important to us.
The festivals that we looked at this term were Eid, Diwali and the Passover. We compared these festivals to the festivals that we celebrate in school; Christmas and Easter.
We made special sweets for Eid and a special drink made out of mangoes called 'Lassi'. Most of us liked the sweets, lots of us weren't very keen on the drink! But we still had lots of fun making them and dancing to the music.
