NEWS FROM MENSTRIE PRIMARY SCHOOL
A visitor to P6
Mrs Asjad came to Primary 6 on the 6th November to tell us some interesting facts about India. She started by telling us about Indian cooking and all the ingredients and spices you use that are essential to make curry. Mrs Asjad showed us ginger, chilli powder, chillies, garlic and garam masala. By the time she had finished showing us all of them the classroom smelt lovely.
John and Finlay tried on traditional outfits that boys and men would wear for a special occasion and she also showed us the shoes boys would wear. Mrs Asjad gave out sweeties and some were delicious and some had an interesting taste.
Near the end she gave all of the girls several bangles. They were all beautiful. We all had an exciting afternoon!
