World Book Day

We had a fantastic time on World Book day looking at a tale from Bangladesh called The old Woman and the Red Pumpkin.  As well as reading the story we also tasted the food of Bangladesh, tried on a sari to act out the story, painted masks of the animals in the story and compared our life in England to that of children in Bangladesh.  Take a look at the pictures to see how much fun we had.

Here the children act out the story using their painted masks.

The girls are thinking about their homes, favourite food and transport in England and comparing it to Bangladesh.

Trying a vegtable curry, like the one the old woman ate in the story.

Traditional sweets like the ones eaten in Bangladesh.  Everyone loved these!!!
