We were very happy to come back to school in January. We have lots of new young friends at school and we are showing them the Montessori way - they are learning quickly. On 21 February we celebrated International Mother Tongue Day and only spoke isiXhosa the whole day - no English. We had lots of Xhosa stories read to us and one of the gogo's from the village came to tell us an old Xhosa story - it was very nice.
We enjoyed a lovely play, swim and lunch at the river one Friday - it was lots of fun! We all like animals and some of us know how bad plastic is for the animals and the earth - we have seen horrible pictures. After a big storm here recently, the marshy field outside our school was very dirty - so we decided to pick up all the plastics, before the wind blew it into the water. 8 Bags later and a nearly clean marsh :-) https://www.facebook.com/trashtag2019/ We challenge all readers to join the #trashtag challenge!
