Post date: 11-Jun-2014 14:57:58

We were delighted to welcome Ms. Woods to our class today. She came to tell us all about her trip to Africa. She went to Gambia with an organisation called G. I. V. E. to teach english. The children loved hearing all about the work she did there. They were surprised to hear that many poor families send their boys to school to be educated but do not send their girls. Ms. Woods taught these girls who had not previously gone to school. They were between 15 and 21 years. She taught them how to read . The children enjoyed looking at the photographs she took while there and had lots of questions to ask ! Afterwards they were busy writing stories about her visit.
