Foundation Unit learn about Celebrations

The Foundation Unit were lucky to learn about 2 festivals in September, and enjoyed tasting new foods and seeing some dancing in the process! 

This week the Foundation Unit found out about and shared the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah and the Hindu Festival of Navratri.  The girls had an informative talk from a parent and sampled apples dipped in honey and pomegranate seeds, as part of the Jewish New Year.  Four girls also dressed in special Indian suits and performed a dance with dandiya to share their celebration of the beginning of Navratri, which is linked with the harvest and performing kind deeds.
