RE/Art

On Tuesday in RE you learned about the Hindu festival of Diwali. Go through the powerpoint “All about Rangoli,” to learn bout Rangoli patterns and how they are created. Can you create your own colourful Rangoli pattern (you don’t have to do it on the floor, you can use paper so you don’t ruin the carpet!). You can choose what materials to use. You may want to look at the pdf Rangoli pattern (see below) for some guidance on how to make a symmetrical Rangoli pattern. Get creative! Be colourful! If you upload a photo onto dojo of your finished Rangoli pattern, I will collate them into a gallery and share it with you.
