Summer School Day 8

In games and sport the children were taught some cricket. It was a good experience as it involved bat and ball and the children really enjoyed themselves. in mathematics children did geometry. In science they learned about food chains and in technology the children finally finished building the puppet theatre. This involved a lot of planning, measuring, sawing, drilling, screwing and amazing teamwork.

Summer School Day 6

Teacher Rispa, the Headteacher at the school,  is so impressed by the different styles of teaching and how the UK teachers and students have increased the learning of children at all levels, including the weaker learners who are doing well and are keeping up with the rest of the class. She was also surprised that all the lessons include activities in practical form, and how teaching has made learning simpler for the learners and they understand more due to the practical activity. She is very happy to see a variety of teaching aids, for example, all the tools used in technology lessons, some of which many of the students and teachers have never seen before.

The Science class was very pleasing for Mrs Rispa to see as she said all the children were happy to find and observe real animals – like the spiders and scorpions caught in the insect hunt; this made the learning more real and interesting and it improved class participation. The children really enjoyed looking at the minibeasts through magnifying glasses and then re-creating them using art straws and discussing their key features.

Summer School Day 5

The morning began with 30 minutes of dancing from the children dressed in their Maasai clothing which was enjoyable and interesting for all to watch. The children then joined in with the staff and students from the UK learning some English songs and dances, including Old MacDonald, The Wheels on the Bus and the Hokey Cokey.

The morning continued with a mini sports day. There was a penalty shoot out, discus-throwing, bean bag target throwing, obstacle course and long jump. We then had the team relays with all 5 groups competing against each other in many races.

In the afternoon we had a party in the school hall accompanied by music. This consisted of many games including ‘musical chairs’, ‘musical statues’ and ‘in and out the bamboo forest’. The children all enjoyed the day and left with smiles on their faces together with their prizes and SJC t-shirts.

Summer School Day 4

Mary is the school secretary. She has enjoyed watching Miss Lucy’s class as they have been very creative working with the jungle animals and playing doctors – opening the children’s imagination. She has enjoyed the new games Harry and Olivia have shown the children, as it is a new experience. Everline told Mary that she would like to be a teacher like Lucy as she has shown them how to do things they don’t understand and has cared for them. Lucca said he loved the games and would like to learn new games and is enjoying the new games he is being taught.

Also the teaching between English and Kenyan teachers is different: for example Mrs Simmonds using shapes and colours in maths to find the answers to the questions, the knitting was also taught with plastic needles and they have never seen this before and it makes it a lot safer for the children to do it. Teacher Silvia said that she wanted to have more experience and skills working with the teachers from SJC and would like to visit the UK to learn new skills about how teachers teach there.

Summer School Day 3

Peter liked playing hide and seek with others at break time, Emmanuel  enjoyed playing netball at break time with his friends. Irene and Elizabeth enjoyed maths, using the Chromebooks, reading the blog about yesterday’s summer school,  and the skipping. Diana enjoyed painting and doing sports whilst Jane enjoyed the mathematics. All the children enjoyed the art class where they made animal masks.

Mr Edgar liked the use of modern technology and the different methods of teaching. He found the technology lesson very interesting; particularly thinking about building strong structures. He was impressed by the children’s interest in using the force of gravity to transport water and the reasons for positioning the water tanks at the highest point on the school site. Mr Edgar has also enjoyed playing football and interacting with the students and staff from the UK.
