International Day

Every year at Dunmow St Mary’s we celebrate International Day with a morning dedicated to teaching our children about the wider world around them. Countries replace classrooms and older and younger children are paired together whilst they explore the creative, hands on and fun sessions our teachers have prepared.

Experiences today ranged from gastronomic (tasting bread from around the world, exploring the States and food of the USA and becoming chefs from Italy); Musical (singing, drumming and dancing a Ghanian tribal song, and creating Mexican mayhem with a sombrero routine); Artistic (re-telling of Icelandic sagas, dot painting in the style of indigenous Australians and Creating Vietnamese conical hats) and relaxation (discovering hygge a Danish form of mindfulness and creating Japanese Koinobori as a celebration of childhood).

The children never know what the next session will bring and embrace the new skills and learning with concentration and enthusiasm as the photos demonstrate.
