On Friday 5th July, we celebrated International Day across the school. Children visited each of the three classes to experience a different country. During this time, they learnt a little about each country and were able to cook a delicacy from each one.
In Year 5 and 6, the children travelled to South Africa, Morocco and Kenya. Children found out lots of new information about each country and enjoyed making a wide range of food. In South Africa, children made crunchies (flapjacks) that are traditionally eaten by children after school. In Morocco, children made herby couscous and learnt why couscous is such an important dish there. In Kenya, children made salad with lots of different vegetables some of which were a bit spicy.
Throughout the afternoon children had the opportunity to learn more about their selected country using art and other creative subjects. The artwork created by the children was fantastic! Children were also able to visit the food trail with their class, allowing them to see what other children across school had been cooking that morning. They were able to try as many of the foods as they wanted. The children in Year 5 and 6 joined up with nursery and reception during their visit to the food trail and they were brilliant helpers and role models for the little ones.
We all had lots of fun on International Day and we are already excited about next year!
