A call from the Mayor
Today during our assembly we received a Skype call from John Adams, the mayor of Lebanesapore. He thanked us for our help so far and asked us a few questions about his school menu. It seems as though the children in his school have chips every day for lunch and that they thought they were healthy as they are potatoes. He also asked if watching TV was a good exercise. Some Y2 children were able to talk to him and answer his questions.
What advice would you give the Y2 children of Lebanesepore?

For the past four weeks if you came into the Year 2 block on a Tuesday morning you would smell delicious smells wafting down the corridor as we were all busy making a variety of health snacks from around the world. There were tacos, guacamole and salsa from Mexico, fruit yoghurt parfait from France, fruit som tam from Thailand and pasta salad from Italy. As well as lots of different dishes made from Thailand with the Thai children in our class. So if you are feeling hungry you know where to come. Hopefully mums and dads, the children will be able to help making dinner at home from now on!
It is at this time of year that we celebrate the Thai festival of Loy Kratong. It is a way for us to give thanks to the water goddess for giving us clean water to drink, wash and have fun in throughout the year. Loy means 'to float' and the kratong is what we float. 2T watched the Loy Kratong assembly and some children even presented or danced in it!
We have had fun playing Thai games and making our own kratongs with the help of some students from a university in Bangkok. In class we have been busy making some paper kratongs and writing Loy Kratong in Thai, before going to float our kratongs at the reflection pool.
