Year 1 Assembly - Africa

Elmhurst School for Boys

16th October 2015 | Key Stage 1

On Tuesday Year 1 performed their 'Africa' assembly to the Infants. They each gave one fact they had learned about Africa before performing 'Che Che Kule' - an African action song in Swahili similar to 'Head Shoulders Knees and Toes'. After this they showed some art work they had created: Table Mountain in the style of the Fauvist painters; Madagascan animals in the style of Miroko Machiko; hippos in clay; Malawian cichlids in the style of Paul Klee and mosaic giraffes. They then performed their version of Special AKA- Free Nelson Mandela.

The assembly was put together by the children themselves, nothing was scripted for them to say. Performing like this enables the children to feel confident and enjoy what they are doing, as they have taken ownership of the learning themselves.
