Music is an art and truly brings a feeling of serenity in addition to a physical learning experience. The act of playing a percussion instrument gives both the mind and body many benefits such as fun, discipline, patience, teamwork and enables self-expression, etc. Simple tunes help students concentrate, focus their minds on activities and retain more information.
Playing football as with any sport provides many health benefits for children. It’s a physically demanding game that provides an opportunity for players to improve their speed, agility, strength, hand-eye coordination and overall cardiovascular endurance. Also, friendships built amongst players.
During our PSHE class, year 5 and 6 made chocolate truffles. We made chocolate, orange and coconut flavour truffles and sold them to parents, teachers and students. We decided to make truffles because the students can learn about teamwork and the different stages of production. The truffles were ฿5 each and we made around ฿1,300, all of which will be donated to Songkhla Home for Children. It was great fun and the students enjoyed making and selling their truffles whilst learning about baking and business too.
