Beech class Interfaith day - The Buddhist festival Wesak

After fastening their seatbelts, Beech and Rowan classes "jetted" off to Kenya for the day.  They then exchanged the plane for minibuses to go on a "virtual safari". After that they split into groups to complete four different activities.  They made a Swahili dictionary and learned how to sing "Heads, shoulders, knees and toes' in Swahili as well as learning how to dance in a traditional African way.  Next they carved animals out of soap to create their own version of a Kenyan soapstone sculpture. After that they cooked some traditional Kenyan foods: Ugali and fried bananas. The fried bananas sprinkled with sugar and nutmeg were very popular! Finally they played some African games including "Shisimba" (similar to noughts and crosses) as well as Jenga which takes its name from the Swahili word for "build".
