FS1 put their Kiswahili into practise at the market

The children in FS1 had an extra fun time in their Kiswahili lesson this week with a trip to the local fruit and veg stall. As part of their learning on the book 'Handa's Surprise', they wanted to buy fruit and practise their shopping Kiswahili at the same time. 

Wrapped up warm in their raincoats and boots, the rainy season weather didn't deter them as they set out with their shopping list.

Asking for ndizi, tikiti maji, chungwa, nanasi, and embe, the children were looking forward already to the next step - making fruit kebabs!

A word from our Swahili teacher, Miss Sekemi: "This is the first year that Kiswahili has been taught in FS1 and it has been very successful. The children have learned through singing and playing games and can often be heard using the Swahili they have learned. Even their English speaking teachers have learned a lot from the children too. Kweli poa sana!"
