This fortnight in Cultural Studies we are learning about traditional Mongolian clothes and the beautiful Gers/Yerts/Yurts that they live within Mongolia!
The Year 1,2,and 3 classes have been comparing their winter clothes with that of Mongolian clothes and we all agree that they really know how to keep warm on the frigid cold winters of Mongolia.
They year 4,5 and 6 classes have also been taking a detailed look at what they have learnt this year and reflected on information that has made an impact on their depth of understandings within the cultures of the countries we have covered this year.
It was very rewarding for me as their teacher to read the evidence of their learning and see their maturing outlook on becoming tolerant, aware and respectful of different cultures and their respective traditions.
Above are some of the samples of their work. In reflection, the students have remembered and discovered so many different facets of Asia and made their learning a growing part of their developing cultural awareness.
