April - Songkran
During April, in Bangkok and many other places in Thailand, they have been celebrating Songkran; Thailands national new year. Songkran is Thailands most famous festival and an important event on the Buddhist calender. The name SONGKRAN comes from the Sanskrit word meaning "passing" or "approaching"
The main event of Songkran is ...water throwing, which has become a huge part of the annual celebrations! and as part of our multicultural explorations this year- we decided to host our very own Songkran water play day. This was a brilliant opportunity for the children to continue to develop their understanding of mutual respect and tolerence for one another, as they were supported to share, turn take, make decisions and work together collaboratively
Here is an extra special video of the children from Rainbow and Sunshine rooms having lots of fun on our sunshiney Songkran clebration day...
