Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival in honour of Ganesh, the god of good fortune and new beginnings.
We were delighted to welcome one of our families to the classroom this afternoon to tell us about Ganesh Chaturthi. They showed us pictures and explained that they had used a sort of clay, made from turmeric, to create a model of Ganesh (they had even added his mouse) and that at the end of the festival they will dissolve the model in water.
As part of the festival they like to share sweets and fruits with others, so they brought lots of fruit to share with everyone in P1D.
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to them all – we really enjoyed the visit and we learned lots!
