Last Tuesday, Year 4J ran a very exciting and successful Indian Day. Below, some of the children to explain what they enjoyed…
“First of all we had P.E. After P.E we had yoga, we split up into two groups, one did cooking and the other was yoga. We learnt lots of positions and learnt the proper way to breathe!” (Nicholas)
“I really enjoyed cooking: we made chick pea salad, rice and bean curry. We had lots of jobs and we were in two groups. Our school lunches were cancelled, so we could eat our home-made Indian food. It was very delicious, but some things were a bit spicy.” (Julie)
“I also enjoyed the cooking part where we were adding some spices, frying, cooking and mixing but I could have improved cutting onions into finer pieces. When we finished the cooking we had the meals as our lunch. I really enjoyed the meals.” (Jakub)
“…then, we tried to play some board games which are enjoyed by the children in India. Finally, we watched a video and drank tea and ate biscuits. The day seemed to fly fast, it was so short! Now I wish I could have Indian food for lunch every day. I would also like to visit Miss Sharmila in India!” (Liam)
My personal thanks to Katerina Vernerova and Sharmila Kaiwar for their invaluable help, enthusiasm and support during the day, and during our cooking sessions throughout this term.
