Today, two parents from the Goshawk class joined us with their new-born babies. They shared their experiences of preparing for the birth of their babies and talked about their journey to the hospital and aftercare. We then compare their experiences, with the journey Mary had to make to Bethlehem and the birth of Jesus.
What an incredible Multicultural week we have had in the Goshawk class! We started by understanding why we are all unique and used Mr Men & Little Miss books to help us ‘embrace our differences’. Our class story was based on a Chinese folk tale, ‘Little Inchkin’, we created our own Chinese drums and used these to help us reinact the story in small groups. We also had our own class food festival, working in line with our current geography topic, whereby we were able to try different food from each continent. The children were also able to speak to children from an international school in Abu Dhabi! A fabulous experience that contextualised their knowledge and understanding of the world! Thank you so much to all our incredible parent helpers!
