  • Africa Day

We had a fantastic Africa Day and all the children looked spectacular.  Bewteen us all there were a couple of Dr. Livingstones, slaves, African tribal women and men, African villagers, modern African citizens, a forest ranger and a safari guide.  See if you can spot who is who on our photographs.

Throughout the day the children had the chance to explore how diverse Africa is and they have learnt there is more to this continent than what we see and hear in the media.  In pairs the children have begun a presentation on famous people past and present that are either from Africa or have some connection.  Did you know that Dr Christiaan Barnard from South Africa was the first doctor to perform a human heart transplant? Or that Khufu was the Pharoah who built the Great Pyramid at Giza?

To round our day off we made a delicious Moroccan wrap and enjoyed it in the sunshine.  Here is a link to the recipe for those of you who would like to try it at home.
