In this lesson with Miss Hughes, we will listen to the Diwali story and identify some of the ways that the festival is remembered and celebrated today. At the end of the lesson, we make a Rangoli pattern. Practise your mathematical skills by making it symmetrical and if you don't have beans, you could draw a pattern instead.
