Celebrating UN Day in Early Years

United Nations  day was  filled with celebration and lots of adventures for our EYFS students.

The children were exposed to different cultures and languages from all over the world. Our Early Years corridors looked bright and colorful with students wearing costumes representing different countries.

The students enjoyed 3 different UN day activities by visiting 3 classes that represented Kenya, South Africa and Canada. All the classrooms we well decorated with each country’s flag, landscapes, food, culture and wildlife. 

For the UN day activity they made binoculars. First the students looked at some African animals and their characteristics. Mrs Paetzold placed emphasize on the value of recycling and appreciating animals by observing them, not harming them through hunting and destroying their habitat. It may seem like a small step, but it might just be the beginning of a deep appreciation and respect for the value of our fragile natural world.

Reception A represented Ms Lelo’s home country South Africa. In the room the students learnt how to say hello in Zulu “sawubona”, explored the South African Big 5 wildlife, and made passports to travel to South Africa. For the UN day activity students enjoyed playing the African drum “djembe” which is one of the most popular musical instruments in South Africa. Afterwards they decorated small wooden hand drums using color pens to take home.

Reception B represented Mrs Royce’s home country Canada. In the room the students investigated why Canada and China are so big, made Canadian crows and learnt some French. For the UN day activity, the students learnt how to play hockey and hold the stick safely. Instead of playing on ice, they played on the floor and used child-sized sticks to score a goal in the net. Hockey is Canada's official national winter sport. With a long winter, hockey is well suited for Canada.  As China prepares to host the 2022 Olympics, Early Learners were introduced to the spirit of the game. 

The children had a fantastic time celebrating diversity.
