To share and celebrate in the Tamil festival of Deepavali (the Southern Indian equivalent of Diwali, the Festival of Light) Year 6 children designed their own Rangoli patterns which were mounted and bound into a booklet and sent to the children of Clare House in Tamilnadu, India. We know that the children in Tamilnadu enjoy looking at the artwork that we send them, as much as our children at BVS like to see the photographs and letters that we receive from India. Two fantastic children from India class, who are responsible for a weekly collection of unspent small change every Friday afternoon, are pictured with the book of Rangoli patterns which contained some very beautiful and unique designs. Since September their weekly collection has raised £56.43 – an amazing achievement!
Clare House and Bure Valley School children help each other to celebrate their Pongal and Easter festivals.
