On Monday we went through a reading on the topic – they laughed hysterically when I mimed the meaning of diarrhoea, something they could all relate to! On Tuesday, we did a quiz to see how much they remembered from Monday, then did some revision when it was obvious they had forgotten almost everything but the diarrhoea! And on Wednesday, they produced some colourful posters (no, they didn’t draw the diarrhoea!), which now have pride of place on the wall outside their classroom. (Sorry, I forgot to take photos of these.) On Thursday, I reverted to supporting the English lessons with a city buildings word search and ‘find the differences between two city images’ activity as I couldn’t find a way to work the food hygiene idea any further.
Our workshop activities this week included making Anjali signs to support their football team’s first game in this year’s competition, the first round of which was the following Sunday; origami – I had taken some multi-coloured and patterned origami paper with me and the school has several instruction books, so we produced all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures and shapes; jewellery making – I had also taken over a supply of plastic and glass beads, shirring elastic and plastic string, so the kids produced a variety of colourful bracelets and necklaces; and games. One of this week’s new volunteers, Courtenay from
, is a PE teacher and she had a great selection of new games to teach the kids, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Tasmania
The great success of the week was how well the garden was growing, and the fact that the kids were watering it every morning without being asked. Here are some photos taken the following week, on my last day at Anjali. The plant growth in just over three weeks is phenomenal!
