Holi - the festival of colour

Today we celebrated the festival of Holi. We learnt about how the festival is also known as the festival of colour.

Holi is a Hindu festival celebrated in India. The festival starts with a bonfire and is followed by the throwing of coloured paint. We spent the day exploring colours and made some different paintings. 

Have a look at what we did. 

What can you remember about the Holi festival?


  1. Looks like you had fun!

  2. It looked fun you are lucky!


  3. Holi is such an amazing festival, I secretly would love to spend a day outside throwing special coloured paint at each other. Although I am not so sure that our Head Teacher would like it!

    We think that your paintings looks amazing
    Alexis- They look pretty with all the colours of the rainbow
    Lexi- They have been splatter painting like us and i like all the red and green colours best.
    Leona- I think your paintings are lovely and pretty
    Lilly- They look messy and messy is my best thing at school it is

    Have you heard of an artist called Jackson Pollock? we have been creating some paintings like his- he like to make giant splatter paintings and they look amazing!
