Our Arabic day has been fantastic! We started our celebrations learning about which countries in the world speak Arabic as their official language. We discovered it is spoken widely across Africa and some parts of Asia. Farhan’s mum then visited us to teach us about henna and she kindly spent an hour decorating our hands. Finally, we spent the afternoon making a Middle Eastern dish called falafel and a minty yoghurt dip to accompany it. Wonderful cross curricular learning: art, geography, D&T and British Values all rolled into one day!
