Celebrating Winter Festivals

REMINDERS / INFORMATION

Please have your child return the Holiday Celebration homework sheet by Monday December 9 so that we can use it in class. 

If any parent would like to come and share a short explanation of a particular festival that is celebrated in the winter break please let me know and I can arrange a time in our morning (8.10 -8.30) or afternoon (3.10-3.30) meeting times during the week of December 9-13.

We are looking forward to an engaging “dip” into our year-long unit, “Cultures express creativity in many ways”.  Students will be exploring different forms of cultural expression, and thinking about cultural values linkned to festivals.
