‘India Experience’ Day On Tuesday 13 th October, Sunita visited Buzzard and Nightingale classes to support our learning about India. Firstly, she taught us to greet someone by saying ‘Namaste’ – the Hindi word for ‘hello’. Then she told us the exciting story about Prince Rama and his wife Sita; this is the story behind the Hindu festival of ‘Diwali’, which is happening in November. She also explained how Hindus pray and offer foods to their gods. They always remove their shoes to help keep the home clean, and wash their hands before praying. This photo shows items from a typical shrine.
