Another day of teaching by the team at Bwelero school and what a good day it was. Everyone upped their game, many stepping out of their comfort zones to do so, and the results were some really good lessons.
Jasneev delivering her Geography lesson, Phoebe and Sophia R leading on the ‘parts of the body’ lesson, Charlotte introducing the concept of using rulers to measure sides of shapes, Ella D on flags and countries, Yasmin and Ellie M painting a large flag with the children – just a few examples of what the children learnt and participated in
Add in to that the times when the Malawi children were teaching our team words in the local language, and seeing their joy in stepping into the teacher role, and the sense of empowerment that it brought – a really great day
In the afternoon we led the Butterfly Space youth group for a 2 hour session. This was great fun but very tiring- never has ‘Hokey Cokey’ been sung so many times in one session! By the end everyone was very ready for a lie down, or dip in the lake to refresh!
Everyone continues to be healthy, to be eating well, and drinking plenty, and enjoying the walk to and from the school morning and afternoon – all in all a happy team.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is up to the school again followed by home visits to see more clearly what rural life is really like for the children we are working with
Please keep the comments coming, it is lovely to hear from home.
Love from us all
