During Sri Lanka week the students at Dogmersfield Primary School also had a go at making Batik patterns on fabric . Batik uses wax-resistant dyes and is applied to cloth. Batik is very popular in Sri Lanka and lots of different types of clothing are made from Batik.

The students also researched facts about Sri Lankan animals and food. Some classes cooked milk rice and lentils.

The week ended with a whole school assembly where each class presented the work they had done on Sri Lanka to the whole family. At the end of the day parents were invited to have a look at all the Sri Lanka work done by the students.
