We had a meeting yesterday to plan our lessons at schools in the Lancashire area over the coming weeks. We are going to teach the children introductions in Hindi, read some of the fantastic Katha children’s books with them, get them to write their own stories about an imagined, magical trip to India and illustrate it, and then to finish off we are going to everyone doing a bit of Indian dancing!
We couldn’t be more excited! This week I get to order all the sequins and feathers for the illustrations and we have to practice our rather rusty Indian dance moves. I hope the children enjoy the sessions half as much as I have enjoyed planning them.
With the lessons all planned now we can look to organising the celebration event for all the schools in Week 9 of this term. I’m thinking lots of indian food, dressing up, decorations, some bollywood music, the works.
