On Friday, the 29th of July, the years fives had an Asian celebration day. Each year 5 teacher had their own activity in which all the students tried their best and had a wonderful and amazing time.
One of the activities was Asians games. These activities included badminton, traditional clothing, checkers, puppets and jacks. Each activity had a fun and exciting vibe all the students had a magnificent time!
The second activity was Asian cooking. The dish we made was fried rice. Parent helpers and teachers helped the students prepare the dish. The ingredients included mushrooms, beans, carrots, capsicum, corn, soy source and of course rice. Each student had their own opinion on whether or not they liked the dish but every student gave it a try.
The last activity was origami. The objective was to make an origami crane. We used square pieces of paper to make the crane. Some of us might have found this activity to be harder than others but it was still an enjoyable activity.
Overall the year 5s had a superb time and we would like to thank all the parent helpers and of course Mrs Kirk, Ms White, Mr B and Miss Chilton
