Holi

In EYFS we learnt about the Hindu festival of Holi.  The children used ICT to recreate the part of the celebration  where they throw paint.  We also heard the story of Prahlad and learnt that Brahman wants us to be kind to each other.

UKS2 have explored the story of Prahlad and Holika and understand that stories found in Hindu scriptures offer Hindus guidance on how to live their lives.  They identified that the message of the story shows the victory of good over evil and those who continue believing and worshiping their Gods will be kept from harm and protected. They learnt why the story is associated with the Holi festival and understand that this is an important time during which everyone, no matter of which ability, gender, religion, sexual orientation, class or race, is treated equally.
