A taste of Africa

Posted: 30th September 2015 | Category: Year 1, Year 2

One of the highlights of the term so far has to be our African themed lunch. Our kitchen staff kindly prepared an African menu for the whole School to enjoy last Tuesday. The photos show the Juniors tucking into a delicious Morrocan chicken & Apricot tagine served with cous cous. There was also mango & cucumber salad and mashed peas & potatoes with corn. For dessert you can see the children tasting Benne Wafers, a traditional African cookie. A particularly big thank you to our cook Wendy for organising this menu for the children and giving them a great African experience. Some of the children were asking Wendy afterwards if they could have African food every day!

We have been enjoying learning about Africa this term. We've been learning the names of the different countries that make up the continent of Africa and locating them on a world map. We have been learning interesting facts about various safari animals and making animal masks. We've enjoyed looking at African artefacts and reading lots of African stories.
