Castle Class


The Festival of Colours


In Castle class we learnt about 'Holi' the Festival of Colours. We learnt that it is an ancient Hindu religious festival which is celebrated all over the world. It marks the beginning of spring and is usually celebrated in March. The festival begins with a Holika bonfire which people sing and  dance around. The following day, everyone celebrates in the streets with a carnival of colour!  They throw colourful powders and water onto each other and sing, dance and have fun together! We experienced this by having our very own 'Festival of Colour', using special powder paints designed for Holi. We had so much fun!
