Indian Immersion In Year 5
11th July 2014
Year 5 had a fantastic India day today to round off their topic looking at life, beliefs and culture in different parts of this fascinating country.
The children (and adults) were invited to wear traditional Indian clothing or something in a similar style. Some of the clothing on show was truly stunning with vibrant colours, glittering jewellery and intricate patterning. Thank you to all of the parents who sent enough food in with their children to feed an army - and to the staff who cooked the vegetable and chicken curries and the rice. All of the children tried foods they had not had before from the vast array which also included pakoras, bhajjis, popadoms, raita, daal, bombay potato, chapati, naan, samosa, mango chutney and much more.
Each class also enjoyed some Indian dance sessions, designed rangoli patterns and drew designs on their hands to represent henna tattoos.
