In class learning our responsibilities as scouts in the first day of the camp
The pupils were so excited role playing in the puppet theatre. Everline, Irene and Joel are acting out their item of Lion and Cheetah chasing a gazelle. The small world was enjoyed by the children as they used their imagination and acted out their ideas
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.

It was really amazing drawing our school administration block and painting it as it is. Hannah made as learn that we don’t have to think much in our minds we can also do a simple practical and make sense.it was a great challenge for as teacher and the pupils .We enjoyed doing the painting as large as it was and later posted it on our dining hall. Ezekiel learnt a lot from knowing how to drill an wood before putting a screw and also doing carpentry.

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.

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.
