Class 2 and 3's Launch day - India
Class 2 and 3 have had a brilliant launch day learning all about India.
To start the day, Sunita introduced herself and told the story of Rama and Sita. The children enjoyed joining in and telling the story alongside Sunita. The children were then shown how Sunita prays at home using her shrine and she explained the steps she takes to pray to her God. Sunita is a Hindu and the children are learning about Hinduism this term.
The children created beautiful Rangoli patterns using stencils and chalks. They worked hard to make the patterns symmetrical and used bright colours to make them stand out. We can't wait to put them up around the classroom.
In the afternoon the children got the have a go at wearing different Indian clothing and learning some Indian dance moves. This was great fun and the children loved the music and dancing.
We have learnt a lot of new things today about India and the different cultures and religions there are in India.
