This week we have enjoyed celebrating our amazing and diverse community. It has been such an exciting and busy week for everyone involved. Each class spent the week finding out about a different country, including food, art, music and physical geography.
Purple class enjoyed learning all about the country Somalia!
Food tasting was a fun way to introduce the country Somalia:
We learnt how to weave:
We looked at Somalian fabric and designed our own vibrant patterns:
A huge thank you to Rohan’s mum who visited the Reception classes to share a story with us that was read to her when she was a little girl! You can watch a version of this story below.
On Friday children had the opportunity to dress in national dress, clothes that represent their country or the country they have been learning about in class. We ended Culture Week with a parade around the school.
This week 2T have enjoyed learning all about Poland. We have learnt how to say some simple polish words and found out a lot of information about the country itself. We really enjoyed trying different Polish foods, we had a class vote and the dumplings were the overall favourite. We have all made a Polish flag and completed a Polish fact file.
Even though it wasn’t about Poland we enjoyed a Chinese ribbon workshop earlier on in the week and we even performed a dance.
Today we enjoyed getting dressed up and representing our countries. At the end of the day we had a parade around the school. What a fun week we have had!
