Ancient India has provided much of the backdrop for what has been a heady term full of dance, excursion, feasts, story and art. The children plunged into Main Lessons which provided introspective elements of Indian culture as well as the more land-based foci of Ancient Persia.
Deep gratitude to those of the community who have assisted in bringing cultural elements to the Class 5 learning journey this term. To Zai and the parents of Class 5 who cooked with the children all morning for our shared Indian feast. To Lainey for her time and dance-teaching talents which allowed us to dance together at the feast and the Harvest Festival. To Luke for his time and efforts with teaching drumming to the cohort to accompany the dance. To John and his mother at the Woolgoolga Sikh Temple for the sharing of their wisdom and time and space – as well as the culinary treats and turban tying techniques. Also a huge thank you to all of the parents of the children of Class 5 for your enthusiasm and support. Looking forward to Ancient Egypt beginning term 2!
