Sophie: It was the second day of teaching today! My group (Team Mo Farah) taught Maths, English (led by me, Sophie) Biology and as our creative activity we did loom bands. All the lessons went really well, and they absolutely loved the loom bands, they didn’t want to stop.
In my English lesson I was soooo nervous, but it ended out fine. We did opposite words, months of the year, days of the week, and grammar. We also did all together time and my team (team Mo Farah) won the over and under ball game. In the English lesson we asked them what makes them sad and happy, some of the responses we got from the children were very sad.
Miss everyone so much at home.
Me and girls in my room (Sarah and Kaya) made our own card game 51, because we don’t know any card games. I will show you it when I get home.
Happy Birthday Dad for tomorrow!
Aislinn: Team Malala (Aislinn’s group) started with Geography using world maps and inflatable globes, which amazed the children as many of them have never seen a map like that before. However, our group was very surprised with how many countries they all knew and all their spellings.
Team Malala was the highest level group so we decided to test them with map coordinates although they sped through those as well. We then moved onto science which they were all very excited about and got everyone involved to demonstrate the particles in solids, liquids and gases.
However the most exciting part of the day for the children (and us) had to be loom band and bracelet making!
All the children were definitely more confident today as well which really helped everyone to be more relaxed whilst teaching and playing with the children.
Overall, the trip is a cultural shock to all of us especially with the one cup of watery porridge the children receive, however, they still seem to have lots of energy to play activities such as volleyball and the parachute game.
