Grade One visit Cordwalles Environmental Centre

Our adventure started with a trip on the school bus. On arrival, the girls were paired with boys from Cordies and eagerly set off on a nature scavenger hunt – which included the dreaded “Blackjack Attack”.  

The girls had to collect dry leaves and twigs which they used to build a fire, and if that was not exciting enough, they even roasted their own marshmallows - undoubtedly the highlight of the trip. As Faatima Essa wrote, “At Cordwalles the best thing ever was roasting marshmallows. That was so good it was a little bit burnt but who cares well I don’t. I like it. It was so good.”

Grade 3s Celebrate Africa Day

This past week has been Africa week and the Grade 3 girls have been involved in exploring all aspects of Africa in their various subjects.  This included gumboot dancing in Music, Zulu folktales, designing an African print mug in Computers and working out the perimeter of the African map in Maths.  The girls worked in pairs on an iPad project to produce an amazing poster of something famous in Africa.  

The week culminated in celebrating Africa Day on 25 May, by dressing up, producing gorgeous dancing ladies during their Art lesson and having an African feast for lunch.  The feast of braaied wors, pap, samp and beans, stokbrood and dried Mopani worms resulted in much enjoyment for all
The Grade 3s certainly all ended the week feeling proud to be Africans together.
