Today we started to learn about Diwali.
We learned that it is Hindu celebration. It is also called ‘The festival of lights.’ Although we are not sure why? We are going to do some investigating to find out all about Diwali and why it is referred to as the festival of lights.
We thought about a recent celebration that a lot of us had taken part in …. Christmas. We reminded ourselves that Christians celebrate Christmas to remember the birth of Jesus.
That got us thinking …. Why is Diwali celebrated? We want to find out the story behind it!
You got me wondering! What about this simple Wikipedia page as a start? https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diwali
Simple Wikipedia is intended for people whose English is not as good as is needed for the main Wikipedia site, but is often good for young school learners too!
