Last week (3rd – 9th December) was Hour of Code Week.
Primary 1D had great fun trying one of the activities in the Computer Suite.
We played an Asteroids Game that introduced us to the logical thinking processes required for computer programming. The game was challenging but fun.
P1D have been learning how to sign when we do the register and when we say goodbye at the end of the day. Today we were joined by one of our mums who read and signed a story for us. We learned signs for hen, goat, cow, pig, house and some others!
Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival in honour of Ganesh, the god of good fortune and new beginnings.
We were delighted to welcome one of our families to the classroom this afternoon to tell us about Ganesh Chaturthi. They showed us pictures and explained that they had used a sort of clay, made from turmeric, to create a model of Ganesh (they had even added his mouse) and that at the end of the festival they will dissolve the model in water.
As part of the festival they like to share sweets and fruits with others, so they brought lots of fruit to share with everyone in P1D.
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to them all – we really enjoyed the visit and we learned lots!
