Onam celebrations

Today is part of the festival of onam in india. It celebrates rhe return of a king from his exile in the underworld. The people make beautiful geometric patterns called rangoli, from flowers or coloured coconut on the ground outside their homes and eat special food. 
We made these paper rangoli this term to learn about shapes. They have symmetrical, repeating patterns on them. 

At Eric's house at the weekend they made a rangoli too.
We also had fried bananas today for our food this week. They make a kind of fried bananas for Onam. We had to use bossy verbs to write instructions about how to make them.
