KS1 International week

KS1 loved International week! This is always a wonderful theme week to discover a new country or a learn a great deal about a country we already know. This week also allowed us to celebrate our cultural differences and shared similarities and values. We explored the country of Bangladesh! we found out fascinating rich history from this South Asian small country surrounded by territories. We discovered that Bangladesh fought very hard to establish their own language ‘Bangla’. A lot of lives where lost in the fight for this and this is represented by the red circle in the flag. The green represents the beautiful lush green fertile land.  During DT we learnt about the significance of fish in the culture, we particularly learnt about the national fish called ‘Ilish’.
