In the final weeks of this term we have had a wonderful time learning about the beautiful folktales of the Philippines and the main religions of the country.
The Philippines are mainly Catholic. Like us in Australia, the Philippines have a diversity of religions but are mainly Catholic. We explored some beautiful Spanish churches and compared them with our own in Australia and found some amazing similarities!
In keeping with our learning “habit of Mind” skill of applying past knowledge, we compared our learning of Vietnamese Buddhist temples with what we now know of the churches in the Philippines.
The senior classes -years 4-6 watched the Philippine folktale- Tung kung Langit and compared it with our own “Creation story” from Genesis in the Bible and the junior classes watched “The First Pineapple” and discussed the origins of folktales and the life lessons they teach- In this lovely folktale the life lesson is to be diligent when doing your chores and to help out Mum and Dad when they are busy! What a great example!
Below are some of the results of our discoveries in the last few weeks!
