Each class chose a country to study, covering every continent on the globe. There was a huge assortment of activities held throughout the week, such as talks by guest speakers, writing different alphabets, learning new words in other languages, making money, singing songs, reading traditional stories, creating artworks in the style of artists from different countries. Everyone demonstrated their learning by presenting an item at a special assembly and it was very impressive to see just how much everybody had learned!
We also dressed in the colors of the flag of each country and it was fantastic to see that every student in the school chose to dress up; it made the assembly very colorful!
