Badger Class had a wonderful week learning about Africa.
We started the week by reading the story Handa's Surprise. The story is set in Kenya and is about a little girl called Handa who takes a basket of fruit to her friend Akeyo. Some naughty African animals steal the fruit out of Handa's basket.
We looked at pictures of traditional African clothing and made our own tribal necklaces.
We also read a west African folktale called 'Too Much Talk'. It was a very funny story about a farmer. We followed this up by making African tribal masks.
We listened to lots of African music and had a go at African drumming and African dancing. We made some shakers by filling plastic cups with rice.
