Learn through creativity at Salisbury House

This term is all about food and travel at Salisbury House!

After Israel, our first destination last month, we moved on to Central America where we learnt about Mexico. We played traditional children’s games and listened to some Mexican music. The highlight was preparing and celebrating a fiesta. We made a piñata out of papier mâché and decorated it. We then filled it with sweets and broke it apart at the party. One of the parents joined us to make guacamole and salsa. Sombreros and bright colours were all the rage.

We are now learning about Kenya and look forward to learning about its culture and making some traditional Kenyan food.

We were fortunate to have a talk with legendary educator, Nodi Ipp. He spoke to us about virtues and bringing out the best in ourselves and others. We each chose a virtue for ourselves to cherish and work on, and then mentioned virtues that each of our friends have. It was a most uplifting and thought-provoking lesson for us all.

Last week we hosted our red carpet movie premiere for The Friendship Quest. Parents came to watch, and everyone enjoyed the snacks provided for the occasion. Each child was awarded a trophy for their role in the movie.
