Our topic was Worldwide Tales and we invited Kuda from Zimbabwe to come and talk to us about her experiences in Africa. Kuda taught us a dance called ‘Making Melodies’, which involved us using some very unusual dance moves. Kuda taught us how to say Good morning in Shona, one of the languages in Zimbabwe, ‘Mangwani’. We also know that a lion is ‘shumba’; a giraffe is ‘twiza’.
We read the books ‘Walking through the Jungle’ and ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and drew our favourite wild animal from the stories. Our role play area in the den was an African village hut and children enjoyed re-enacting the stories. We all had the opportunity to taste a variety of fruit from Africa, including guava fruit juice.
Our parents have been helping the Clever Kittens to practise their creative skills making their own African rain maker for the Home Learning, which has been put on display in the corridor. Well done everyone.
