This year pupils from Year 5 celebrated “Diversity” by learning about the ancient art of making Rangolis. Rangoli art is a traditional South Asian Art form with the designs passed down from generation to generation.

Working in groups, students created intricate geometric and floral patterns in bright colours. This allowed them to learn about repeating patterns and contrasting colour combinations. Moreover, they used coloured chalk to create their designs as an alternative to the traditional coloured sand, rice, flour, red brick powder or petals.

They thoroughly enjoyed our guest speakers, working in groups and creating designs and patterns for their fellows and teachers to enjoy! We hope such kind of activities will foster an interest in young minds for the different forms of art and culture.
