In our group we have a wonderful range of different cultural backgrounds. The children have identified that some children speak in a language they know and others do not. To further understand this we have been looking at the world map to get to know where we are from. In addition to this we have been using mirrors to look at our faces and make paper plate faces to hang up in the room. We have learnt a few Indigenous songs and our student teacher Alice has taught us some Mandarin. Finally, we have been listening to some world music inside. It is wonderful to see the children’s faces light up when they recognise the language being used. Next Term we will take part in Diwali celebrations to further our cultural understanding.
