Back to school
Here are some of the children from Standard 3, Fumathoka school, who I taught today! Wrote with chalk on a blackboard; amazing how you don’t forget how to do it. After a talk about my family I asked them to write a bit about their own families. Corrected some punctuation and gave them all smiley faces. The children ranged in age from 8 to 11; they only go to the next class if they pass their exams.
This photo was taken just before the end of the day. Can you spot their teacher Rebecca?
The children are very happy because they have 4 days holiday while the standard 8 children take their National exams. Back to school next Friday!
This is their teacher Rebecca, marking their exam papers from earlier in the week.
She has been teaching these children for three years but will be going back to standard 1 next year to start again.
