In preparation for INTERFAITH week (12-19 Nov), Year 4 met with their buddy class from Afifah Islamic School. We played some ice-breaker games to begin with, followed by some free playtime where we showed each other our playground games and finished the day chatting over refreshments. We look forward to meeting up again soon.
As a class, we made Memory Matchboxes. We decorated the outside to reflect our loved one, what they liked and their name. Inside, we wrote a special message for them. Some of us worked at home on Ofrendas with our families.
