On Thursday we had Italian Day. We had lots of activities about Italy.
We dressed up in togas just like the Romans did. Some of us were dressed as slaves.
We watched a very funny play about two slaves who got a chance to be strong and brave gladiators.
Then we ran a marathon around the school. We were tired!
After the marathon we made laurel wreaths and Mrs Kennedy took photos of us.
Next we had a soccer clinic with Daniel and Steve. We learnt some soccer skills like kicking the ball with the inside of our foot and using your head to hit the ball, but not your hands.
Then we had margarita pizza and gelati for lunch! Yum! Yum!
After lunch we made busts of ourselves with salt clay. A bust is like a sculpture of your head and shoulders. We took them home to paint when they are dry.
I liked Italian Day because we got to have pizza. Oscar
