We continued to think about Diwali by digging up our own clay to make diva lamps, like the ones Rama and Sita followed to get home safely after the battle with Ravana the ten headed demon-king. Did you know that in much of Haxby if you dig down a foot - or about the depth of one of our 30cm school rulers - there is lots of clay? Haxby even used to have it's own brickworks there was so much of the stuff! As you can see from the picture the clay makes a lot of mess when you add just a bit of water to help make the diva lamp shape - some of us ended up looking like we'd just been for a spa treatment!
