Around the World in 8 Days - Fridays 4-5 pm

Session 2: April 5, 2019 - London, England

It was a fun class and I want to thank my super fellow adventurers who were super creative today. 

Here is a summary of what we did: 

  1. Learnt about London - Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Buckingham Palace, and Big Ben.  I was so happy to hear that so many of the kids already knew that Big Ben is the name of the bell placed in the tower. 
  2. Learnt some key British terms that they enjoyed.  "Crisps" for chips and "Bonnet" for the front of the car among others. 
  3. Played several games of marbles which the kids totally got into.  
  4. Got ready for our tea with the Queen by making Tea Bags and place mats. 
 
 

 Note to parents: 

1) Please send your child with an old t-shirt that they can get dirty next week as we will be doing messy art. 

2) Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see more pics and videos of what we do.  Our handle for both is @explorerhop

3) Next week we will be in Australia.  If any of the kids have been there, or have something they want to share that is from there, I said they can bring it over.  

4) Please put your comments of this class at the bottom.  It really helps us when we get feedback from parents.

  4. Wear a saree!  Even the boys got into it which was great. 
  5. Write their names in Hindi. 
  6. Do some improvised Bollywood dancing 

Note to parents: 

1) Please can you ask your child to come over as soon as their class gets out.  This way we don't loose time waiting for them to arrive.
