We had a wonderful international day just before the break. The performances were enjoyed by all and the workshops that the high school kids had organised were very engaging. Grade 3 took part in a France workshop and an Indonesia Workshop. In the France workshop, the children learnt some facts about France and collated it with information they already knew. They then worked in teams in a Jeopardy style game show quiz. Everyone's competitive side came out and the battle was on!
A little while later, the children began a workshop centred around sharks and the people living in Indonesia. They were told a short story about a shark who lived in the water surrounding one of the islands and they also had a go at playing some musical instruments in the style of Indonesian music. To wrap things up, they were taught a simple Indonesian dance. See below for the video.
Of course, after the excitement of the morning and the two workshops, I had a bunch of starving children to look after. Luckily, it was time for the International buffet; a buffet that EVERYONE looks forward to! Needless to say, the food was delicious and our bellies were all totally full.
International Day 2017 was definitely a huge success.
We are a group of 8 and 9 year olds who are kind, fun and imaginative!
