June Holiday Programme: Malay Culture in Singapore
Week 2 of our June Holiday programme was a real treat for our children! We learnt more about the Malay culture in Singapore- from learning about different festivals and traditions to having a go at making traditional Malay desserts.
Let’s delve into what unfolded this week at Ichiban Montessori! 😁
Some of our teachers delivered an enriching sharing on traditional cultures and traditions of our Malay community. They were also introduced to traditional snacks and learnt more about the recent Hari Raya celebrations.
Children made interesting crafts that represented significant emblems of Malay culture. Our teachers also took the opportunity to share about the meanings behind the various colours and shapes that children used.
In the following pictures, children used recycled materials to create models of the “Kampong” houses that people used to live in.
Children were also exposed to different games that were common back in the day! They enjoyed playing with the simple yet engaging games 😁
Children were really excited about this segment as they got to work together to bake a traditional cake known as 马来糕, which originated in Malaysia when it was under British’s influence. It is now a famous dish in our Dim Sum restaurants. What an amazing depiction of the influences each culture has on each other!
Finally, we look like to take this opportunity to thank our parents who show their constant support to us by taking their children’s learning back home. We place a lot of emphasis on establishing a strong repertoire and relationship with our parents as we believe that this enhances our children’s learning meaningfully. Children’s learning is reinforced whenever they encounter consistent inputs from both their school and home environments.
Thank you parents and visitors for joining us on Week 2 of our June Holiday programme. Do stay tuned for more! 😊
