Today was my first full day at school. We started the day with singing the Indian national anthem in assembly. I have to learn the whole thing off by heart. Mummy has copied it underneath. I had Maths today too. I had to write down numbers 1-100 in words as well as numbers. I got up to 64! We had PE and played a tag kind of game but with a girls and boys team. The girls won! I have a lot of home work for this week. At least one homework for all my subjects. At leaving time we saw a man climbing up the coconut tree in the school garden. It was as tall as a 5 storey building and he just had a rope on his hands and another on his feet. He looked like a tree frog!
Indian National Anthem
Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya he
Tava shubha name jage
Tava shubha ashish maange
Gahe tava jaya-gatha
Jana-gana-mangala-dayaka jaya he
Jaya he, jaya he, jaya he
Jaya jaya jaya, jaya he !
We have a week’s holiday now for Ganesh Chaturthi is a very famous festival in India and is especially celebrated by a lot of people in Maharashtra and Goa. It marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed god.
After school Mummy and I went to get my stitches out. It wasn’t at all bad as I thought it would be. I didn’t feel it. Thank you for all your messages. I really liked skyping with Pa, Julie, Tabitha, Daisy and Luella. Ro took all his clothes off.. Mummy & I have put some pictures of Ro swimming and dressing up.
