Portsmouth Home Ed Group - Nigeria

Yesterday at our home ed group we continued with our theme of looking at different countries. This time the children had been looking at Africa with Nigeria as the basis, and had focused on Nigerian kings, games, stories and lanscapes among other things. Hannah took 3 African stories to share, 'Handa's Surprise', 'Beautiful Banana's', and 'We all Went on Safari', and one of the mum's brought some modelling clay so they all had a try at making some clay models. Another family brought some really interesting African games to play and the children all had a really good time and learnt a lot too.

I wish i could remember what this game is called -  here's a picture of it in action anyway!!

Looks like a good learning day.
The game is called Mancala, great for maths learning.
