Today had been another action packed day! We were met early, after breakfast, at the hotel and driven to Bawa Lalvani. Again, we were greeted with a fabulous dance. The children performed a 'Bihu Dance' on the front lawn of the school using coloured ribbons.
Next we visited two different Grade 4 classes where we completed some activites with the children. First we asked class 4B to create their own game. Working in small groups they had to design an 'odd one out challenge' that they could then swap with another group to try to complete. Then we moved to clss 4C where we asked the children to create their own sentence. They had to write each word on a different piece of paper and then pass the pieces on to another group for them to try to correctly sort the sentence.
Both of the classes really enjoyed working in small groups as they often only work alone at their desks. They children really enjoyed creating activites for their class mates to complete.
We then moved upstairs to the Music Room where a different class came in to sing for us. They all sang 'Sing Hosanna' beautifully and then asked us to join in with them. After singing they asked us to sing and teach them a song. We both felt vey nervous!
The last part of the morning at school was spent outside on the school field. We joined in with three different PE lessons. Firstly we played a game called 'Dog and bone' with Grade 2, then 'Blind man's buff' with another Grade 2 class. Lastly we joined in with some older children playing a game of cricket. We were both very hot after running about in the midday heat.
After lunch, we travelled to a theme park called 'Wonderland' with some of the teachers. There were several rides and a water park. It was interesting to see what Indian ladies wear for swimming. If you want to see what Wonderland is like you can [click here] to visit the website.
On our way back at the hotel we stopped at a restaurant for dinner. We both had Paneer Tikka with rice and naan. Paneer is a type of fresh cheese made using curd that is popular in South Asian cuisine.
We are are looking forward to another busy day in school tomorrow!
