We hope you enjoy watching out assembly. We had a lot of fun making up the rhyme and planning our performances.
 
 
G4s just finished our unit Where We Are in Place and Time, and we learned about why people explore, problems they face, how their explorations have changed the world, and many other interesting facts. Then we became explorers ourselves and documented our explorations using a green screen and iMovie.

4JKers just had an assembly based on Christopher Columbus' explorations and a trailer on 4JK Explorers. Watch our assembly here!
 
 
Hi, we are Meghna and Chiemi, the roving reporters from 4SN. 

Last week it was Deepawali, or the Festival of Lights. Deepawali is celebrated because Rama, one of the Indian gods, was going to the forest with his brothers and his wife. After they came back all the villagers were so happy to see them so they had a festival of lights.

We learnt how to make Rangoli from our teacher aid  Ms.Radhika. We made the Rangoli by sprinkling colored powder on the outlined paper.  Ms. Radhika put glue on the paper.  They look beautiful and really colourful. The Rangoli took 2 days to dry. It was hard to make because the powder was hard to stick on the glue.

We also got some  Indian sweets from Ms. Radika, after we finished making the Rangoli. During Deepawali Indians eat a lot of sweets so they can think good thoughts and have a prosperous life. The sweets are made with lots of ghee which is a fatty Indian butter. They are very yummy though!!!
