African Voices

2nd February 2018
Following the successful day two years ago we again enjoyed a day being involved with the African Voices Project in partnership with Leeds University.
The idea behind the collaboration is to support children's learning about the cultures, traditions and everyday life of children who live in Africa from the experiences and stories of visiting PHD students from the African continent.
During the day, four mature students worked with KS2 classes to explore the continent and countries of Africa. They looked at maps, found out about the climate, the types of food people eat and the infrastructures of some of the countries. The children were fascinated comparing their own experiences of school and daily life with those that the students shared and realised there were many similarities.
Thank you to Mr Williamson for organising this great event and to the Leeds University students for making it so interesting for the children.
