Cultural Week

In Class 2, our focus country for Cultural Week was Kenya. In English, we used the story Lila and the Secret of the Rain as a stimulus for our writing. 


During the week we were very lucky to try some skills. Firstly, we had a go at Samba drumming. There were lots of different instruments for us to have a go at.

We also had the opportunity to try some new foods connected to Africa. We tried mango, pomegranate and paw paw fruits. Thank you to Kate for coming in to share this with us. 
We also had another visitor who came and taught us an African dance. The dance could be done before a battle or hunt to build up the energy ready for both events. We had to learn lots of steps quickly but had great fun.
