Making a difference

20th October 2023

This week we read the story Handa's Surprise. The story is about a girl called Handa who puts 7 delicious fruits into her basket for her friend Akeyo. On the way to Akeyo's village, some animals take the fruit from Handa's basket! But not to worry, a tree full of tangerines fall into Handa's basket which just so happens to be Akeyo's favourite fruit!


We have been busy retelling the story, playing African drums and got the chance to taste some exotic fruit! We tried pineapple, mango, guava, avocado, passionfruit, orange and banana.
