The week started with on set of rain. Rain is important to our daily lives. There is a lot of water which is also important to every creature. There isn’t a lot of dust which might cause some infections like running nose to our children because all the dust has been swept away by the rain.

Also due to more rain, the children were unable to play outside their classes. They were also advised to put on warm clothes all the time. Due to change of climate conditions, we taught the theme weather whereby we talked the sub-theme rain. It enables the children to understand the climate around them and also they become curious in nature. The process involves curiosity, discovery and experiment. We had experiments using water whereby we discussed things that float and sink in water.

The children were able to observe, communicate and record what happened. It was so enjoying when the children found out that a stone sinks in water while feathers floats in water.

This week we had a short break on Tuesday and all the students were required to stay at home and celebrate Kenyatta holiday.

Surprise from England

This being the fourth week of our third term in school this year, we are lucky to have teacher Jenny from England. She is a teacher in a school known as Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries. She has been in our school, Red Rose Children’s Centre, from Monday to Thursday. She was received with a warm welcome from both the staff and the pupils.

According to her programme back in England, she said that she had planned to visit East Africa during her vacation. When she went to the internet, having chosen to visit Kenya, she found Children of kibera foundation. Through this she came to learn about Red Rose School.Teacher Jenny brought stationary, T-shirts, play items for both indoor and outdoor games and modeling dough to help the pupils in their learning. She has interacted with the pupils very much. Pupils have really found learning more interesting and enjoyable in her presence. This is because she could read, write, model, sing, play or attend computer lessons with the pupils.

Her views about our school she enjoyed her time very much. She counts the pupils very lucky to be in school. Especially that they are offered a difference by quality education with limited resources. The pupils are so happy and they do appreciate the education they receive. “They have so much energy and enthusiasm. I will miss them when I go back to England and hope to return one day to see their progress to finish the primary education”. She said.

All her efforts are appreciated so much because this is fantastic and amazing. Pupils have benefited a lot through her. They are very happy and thankful
