Today, the children were introduced to their new topic…Hola México!
To kick off the topic with style, the children learnt a little bit more about Mexican culture. We started by listening to (and watching) a traditional Mexican musical performance involving hats. It certainly got the children moving! They could also use percussion instruments, such as tambourines, maracas and hand drums, to accentuate and drive their movements further.
After all that exertion, the children then tried some Mexican cuisine and took a refreshing sip of Latin limeade. It was safe to say the jalapenos in the tacos got the taste-buds tingling!
Finally, the children made a papel picado; a traditional Mexican decoration which told people their ancestors were nearby.
A huge thank you to Mrs. Khan for organising such a memorable experience for the children. Why not take a look at some of the snapshots from our fiesta!
Show of hands…who is excited for this topic?
