Rangoli 

What is Rangoli and what does it mean?

Rangoli, meaning colour, is a pattern created for the floor from rice or powder.

But some displays are made entirely from flower petals or leaves.

The Indian folk art form is believed to bring good luck and is often passed down from one relative to another to keep the tradition going.

In RE the children have been learning about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. During Diwali people make wonderful Rangoli patterns on the ground to welcome Lakshmi.

After learning about Rangoli designs, the children designed their own. Here are a few examples, at different stages of design.  They did a fantastic job!
