Friday 7th September

Dear Parents,

We have been very busy this week getting to know more of our K2D families.Thank you to all the families that shared this week.

On Tuesday, Joseph’s parent’s Shannon and Christine shared with us information about the USA.  We learned about California, Joseph’s home state, and the sports and foods that are popular in America.  We even tried the most popular candy bar and cookies from America.

On Thursday, Jenna’s mum, Esther, came to K2D and talked with us about Uganda.  We learned about Ugandan food, music, dancing and national dress.  We especially enjoyed learning about the meaning behind the Ugandan flag.

Seo Jun’s mum, Jeein, came in this morning and taught us how to count in Korean.  She also taught us how to bow to our elders as part of Korean New Year celebrations.  After children have bowed, they receive bags with money in them for the New Year. After we bowed today we received bags of cookies. Lucky us!

Also today, Hoang Linh’s mum, Nhung, taught us about Vietnam’s Autumn Moon festival. We really enjoyed listening to the Vietnamese music.

Please enjoy a clip of some work we did this week. 

Today we also celebrated Lina’s birthday with cake and singing.  We hope Lina has a lovely day celebrating tomorrow with her family.
