Kiganda Dance

Uganda culture is one of the most enjoyable lessons in Reception. The children learn about Uganda’s diverse culture especially the food, nursery rhymes, animals etc. They have also been learning simple common words in Luganda such as greetings, colours and members of the family. Additionally, they have learnt some diverse dancing styles from different regions of Uganda. Here they are dancing a Kiganda dance. dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav dav Like this:Like Loading...

Story Fun In Reception

The Reception children this week have been focusing on story narratives. The children have been encouraged to create their own stories using their imaginations with the help of stimulative provisions in class. They made a story road map, tried story scribing, acted on the amphitheatre, read in the dark tent, made magic wands and painted story stones. It has been a fun week. Like this:Like Loading...
