Rangoli Pattern

P2 went out with our Indian visitors to collect some flowers and leaves from the school grounds and the area nearby.  Then the pupils from Singhania School showed the class how they designed and made a rangoli pattern.  The room smelled beautiful by the end of the afternoon!

Warli Painting

P6 at Mid Calder learned about Warli painting and tried to paint some figures, animals and plants in the Warli style.  We learned that Warli painting comes from a tribe in Maharashtra.

What a fantastic day we have had with our visitors from India.  The children all arrived at school with their host families.  Miss Cotter went to collect the teachers and managed to get them to school  with the car roof open in between the sleet showers.  In the evening, the teachers were treated to a Burns Supper at Miss Cotter's house.

Visit to Scotland

We have been looking forward to meeting our visitors and they are finally here! Everyone arrived safely last night.  Ten pupils are hosted with families and the three teachers are staying with Mrs Wood.  We had a great day out in Edinburgh today despite the wind, rain and cold.  We are all excited about meeting everyone in school tomorrow.
