This week in English we have been working on following instructions and making our own instructions to make a cup of tea and a slice of toast, simple really??? Students had very different ideas when making a cup of tea or a slice of toast.

We had an amazing day learning about Indian culture, we dressed in Indian clothes, looked at the jewellery, objects and symbols from the Sikh religion plus we designed our own Rangoli patterns. We tasted vegetable samosas, onion bhajis, chicken korma,  poppadoms,  naan bread and mango chutney. Students discovered a liking for Indian food that they didn't expect!
