We have been here a week and today was our last normal teaching day at Jasola. Today we taught three different classes from grade 2 to 4 and came away with different pieces of work to share with our school. We then spent the rest of the day talking with the principal of the primary section of the school, discussing the link and thinking about new ideas. A bit of time was also spent talking about their trip to England, planning what they would like to gain from their experience. Whilst we were there, preparations for tomorrow’s sports meet were taking place, flags were being hung, banners were being made and children were practising their events. All of the staff and pupils were excited by the build-up and we are anticipating a day to remember.
Chhattapur was the afternoon’s first destination, where we got to see many different temples and even a massive statue of the monkey God Hanuman. We then visited one of Delhi’s many gardens and finished the afternoon off with a trip to another local market. Throughout the day we got to sample some authentic Aloo Paratta, an Indian dish made of flour, water, potato and spices, the verdict was…… delicious!
