This term room three's inquiry has been based around celebrations. We have had a strong focus on a student led inquiry and making sure the students are taking control of their own learning. We have look at celebrations such as halloween, Diwali and birthdays. As a part of this inquiry the students decided they wanted to plan and create their own birthday party.
We spent the past couple of week in discussion about what activities, food and traditions are a part of a birthday party. From this we made our plan:
We had a awesome day playing traditional games like pin the tail on the donkey, pass the parcel, piñata, and races!
Of course we couldn't forget the most important part.... the cake! We sang happy birthday to the 7 people who had birthdays this term, cut the cake, popped party poppers, blew out the candles and ate cake!
We had a amazing birthday party and loved celebrating all the awesome people in our class, let us know if you know any other games or traditions we could have done!
