WOW Around the World

By Support - January 18th, 2022 | Posted in News

Every class has started the term learning about a country and a festival that is celebrated in that country as part of our WOW start to the term. The children have learnt about artists, customs and food associated with this festival and the country. Some classes also learnt music and dances.

The fortnight culminated with a Cultural Festival where each class prepared a display showing what they had learnt and brought a dish from each country for other classes to try. This was all displayed in the dining room and each class had a turn reading about what the other classes had discovered and trying their wonderful food.

The festivals we learnt about were:

Diwali from India

Day of the dead from Mexico

Waitangi Day from New Zealand

Loy Krathong from Thailand

Carnival from Brazil

Panafest from Ghana

Venice carnival from Italy

La Tamborarda from Spain
