Amidst the rehearsals for Friday the children still had time to see a film in English based on a book we studied together and finish the new artistic works, which were slightly more difficult than the ones they were assigned to do during the first two days of the course.
They seemed quite happy and took advantage of the mid-morning break by jumping and swirling around the pole in the grassy courtyard of the Training Centre.
Painting book markers
Assembling wooden pieces to make a 3D monkey and a 3D helicopter
Making a meticulous stick on painting and trying to assemble wooden pieces to make a wooden snake
Colouring children of the world
We tried for the tenth time to get a proper group picture that could be used for the certificate and we finally made it, once none of the previous photos looked good enough.
We finally took pictures of the completed artistic pieces, which the children were particularly proud of, whether they were the complicated wooden pieces or the stick on paintings.
Before heading back home the children who had been with me the previous year asked to watch the puppet animated version of "Peter and the wolf", which we partly watched before having had a discussion aorund the main aspects of Sergei Prokofiev's composition.
The Head of the Training Centre, who would not be in the following day to hand out the certificates despite being a fervent admirer of this type of activities (whose grandchildren have been attending), was exceptionally allowed into the classroom (Ana and I decorated with the children's photos, as well as their artisitic pieces) where the artistic exhibition would be held.
I don't think words are necessary to describe how happy and surprised he was to see how hard the children had worked.
