WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PART ?
We have been talking a lot about each others stories. Everyone has a different story to share.
Today we were lucky enough to hear Ari’s story. Ari’s grandmother and Aunt are visiting from India so they came along with Ari’s mother Navas to tell us about the Rego family story.
We all learnt many , many new things about India. Even the teachers learnt lots of interesting facts.
These are some of the interesting things we learnt.
- India is 5000 years old
- There are 29 different states and 6 territories in India
- Each state is like a little country , they each had different food, dancing styles and clothes.

- There were 4 religions started in India, Hidu, Sikhs, Jans, and Buddhism.
- There were 4 other religions introduced to India: they are Judaism, Zoroastian, Muslim and Christianity.
- In 52AD, St Thomas the Apostle came to India- some people say he is buried there.
- Lots of things were invented in India- snakes and ladders, chess, yoga, and martial arts and they taught us how to count.
