Recently, we had a Mexican day celebration and did a variety of activities!
Firstly we had Ben (a musician) who delivered a music lesson about Huasteca music. It was an exhilarating experience as we played percussion instruments and created music.
Soon after, we moved onto trying some mouth–watering Mexican food. Some of the food we tried were: avocados, salsa dips, Mexican wedding cake, Mexican cookies, cinnamon bread with a delicious cinnamon dip, flavoured tomato rice and nachos!
Later in the afternoon, we had a parent volunteer who came in to teach Spanish to Year 6 children.
To calm us down after all these amazing activities, we created god’s eyes using wool and lolly sticks. Mexican believe that a God’s Eye (in Spanish, Ojo de Dios) is a spiritual and votive object made by weaving a design out of yarn upon a wooden cross.
