Around the World at Salisbury House
This term is all about food and travel at Salisbury House! After our first destination, Israel, we moved on to Central America where we learnt all about Mexico. We played traditional Mexican children’s games and listened to some Mexican music. The highlight was preparing and celebrating a Mexican fiesta. We made a piñata out of paper maché and decorated it. We then filled it with sweets and broke it apart at the party. One of the parents came to make guacamole and salsa with us. Sombreros and bright colours were all the rage for the day.
We are now learning about Kenya and look forward to learning about its culture and making some traditional Kenyan food.
We were fortunate enough to have a talk with legendary educator, Nodi Ipp. He spoke to us about virtues and bringing out the best in ourselves and others. We each chose a virtue for ourselves to cherish and work on, and then mentioned virtues that each of our friends have. It was a most uplifting and thought-provoking lesson for us all.
Last week we hosted our red carpet movie premiere for The Friendship Quest. Parents came to watch our movie, and everyone enjoyed the snacks and popcorn provided for the occasion. Each child was awarded a trophy for their various roles in the movie.
