Another huge thank you to Arun’s Mummy, Mrs Gibbons, for such a wonderful afternoon last Friday. Every child enjoyed learning all about some Indian traditions, particularly those to do with weddings. The boys danced to the beat of a huge drum, played by Arun’s uncle, whilst the girls dressed in saris and bangles. We saw a huge sword that was worn by the groom at a wedding and also some golden elephants which the children passed around. The real treats however were the tasty samosas and bhajis that were made for us by Mrs Gibbons. We all learnt – and ate – a huge amount!
This week in the Nursery, the younger class have made some feathery owls from the lovely story ‘Owl Babies’, as well as chocolate nests with little chocolate eggs in the centre.
The older classes have been trying to escape the cold weather by talking about sunny Spain. We have danced to some Spanish music, made some beautiful flamenco ladies and enjoyed some ‘child friendly’ Sangria!
Don’t forget that International Morning is fast approaching, so we hope those costumes are well on their way!
