This term Year 3 students at Regents International School Pattaya have been studying different countries as part of their ‘World Cruise’ topic and last week they put together a wonderful extended assembly to demonstrate all the new skills they have learnt.
Each class chose a story from a different part of the world. First off were Class 3I with ‘Possum Magic’, a tale from Australia that tells of a worried Grandmother Possum who turns her grandchildren invisible to protect them from the dangers of the Australian bush. Next were Class 3T with ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, a powerful story from the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil that reminds us of the importance of respecting nature. Then Class 3R kept up the environmental theme with ‘Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain’, a traditional story from Kenya about how Ka-Pit brings a belated wet season to a drought riddled area. Finally Class 3S travelled to Ancient Greece to recreate brave Odysseus beating the one-eyed monster-giant, the Cyclops.
