In March, CHPA pupils had a focus afternoons, learning about the Hindu festival of Holi, which is also known as ‘The Festival of Colour’. We have learned how Hindu’s celebrate this special day and took part in lots of fun activities linked to it.
In EYFS, pupils created ‘Happy Holi’ cards using water and powder paints.
In Year 1, pupils created ‘splatter paintings’ and designed a Holi T-shirt full of colour.
In Year 2, pupils created Holi patterns by using pointillism; by creating a pattern using cotton bud dots and paint.
In Year 3, pupils created their own blow art pictures using watercolour paints.
In Year 4, pupils sequenced the story of Holika and Prahlada. They also created colourful artwork using watercolours and white wax crayons.
In Year 5, pupils made large scale art by throwing water balloons filled with paint at a large canvas outside. The children chose specific colours that have meaning.
In Year 6, pupils invited parents to join them and took part in a Holi style colour run. This was a fantastic experienced that everyone enjoyed (except the cleaners!!!).
