Three moms from Morocco visited children in Year 6 of Primary Education last Friday. They showed us how to make two Moroccan dishes called “msemen”, similar to pancakes, and “harsha”, a kind of bread, and Moroccan tea “atei”. They also learned how to say the ingredients in Arabic and they greeted them in that language too. It was a great experience and children liked the food very much. Moroccan moms are great cooks!
During the next week children in Year 6 are going to do a worksheet to reinforce the new vocabulary and to see what they remember of the cookery class. These type of activities promote multilingualism and the cooperation, integration and promotion of Moroccan culture in our school community.
