4MD UKRAINE held DCIS’s very first Great Ukrainian Bread off. Ukraine is known as the breadbasket of Europe and they have been learning all about bread. They started off by tasting different types of bread and describing the taste, texture and appearance. Next, the children designed their own types of bread; two sweet and two savoury. Choosing their best flavours and shape, each child made their own bread, adding their extra ingredients to a standard bread recipe. The flavours of bread ranged from M&M bread, to honey bread, olive bread and chorizo bread.

After a thorough and rigours section process, five guest judges were invited to taste and rate the bread; Mr. Short, Mr. Rinaldi, Ms Lebihan, Miss Scott and Miss Ford. Mr. Rinaldi took his role very seriously and had his own checklist at hand. The children then got an opportunity to taste each other’s bread and indeed their own bread. It was an extremely enjoyable experience and if you ‘knead’ to learn more, please look at the pictures and visit 4MD's Ukraine tent on UN Day.

And ealier in the week 4MD UKRAINE designed their own pysanka. Pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using wax and dye. As 4MD are representing Ukraine for UN Day, they decided to create their own version. The children designed their own pysanka and transferred their designs using paints and markers. Visit the Ukraine tent on Friday to see the final creations. They are egg-cellent!

2EN DENMARK visited the secondary art room to create some prints as part of their UN Day preparations. They each made an image of the Little Mermaid statue from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Nursery NSU JAPAN  were taught origami  by some of our Japanese parents. They also got to share some loverly Japanese sweets.

Reception RFD NORWAY showed a particular interest in Vikings. A group of children worked together to construct and paint a Longship. After noticing one of the God’s was named Thor, some children were inspired to create colourful warrior shields and helmets. There was a real buzz of excitement in the classroom all afternoon. Great work, children.

5LH ITALY  have been working hard to create a class collage to display in their tent. They used their creativity to design a bold, bright and colourful background to represent their own personalities and then added quotes about what makes them unique.

Nursery NSM INDIA made elephants ears and trunks to wear and made a giant tiger to display in their tent.

1RE GREECE found Greece on a map of the world and learnt that the colours of the Greek flag are blue and white and why blue is such an important colour for Greek people. The children then went on to make their own Greek flags using different techniques.

The children also had great fun finding out about the first ever Olympic Games, which were held in Ancient Greece a very long time ago and compared these early Olympic Games with the modern day ones we have today. They learnt about the importance of the Olympic torch and had a go at making their own.

1RE have loved learning about Greece this week and are looking forward to learning more about all the other countries that are represented at DCIS on UN Day.
