Diwali - Lotus Flowers and Elephants

As part of our Faith Week focus on Hinduism, we have been looking at how Diwali is celebrated. We discussed the goddess Lakshmi, and how she is often depicted with elephants and lotus flowers. We then decorated our own! 


Aardman Animations Workshop

Today, we had someone from Aardman Animations visit us and teach us how to make our own Shaun the Sheep!
