Year 4 had the most wonderful time last Thursday on our African Day. We started the day with some African maths, doing data handling on African Animal statistics. After break, we went to the Discovery Room to cook. We made jollof rice which is a traditional African dish. It consists of chicken, tomatoes, rice, herbs, garlic and butter. We made it in groups of four. We followed the recipe ourselves and made it with very little help from Mrs Millard and Mrs Stockley. We put it in Tupperware boxes to take home for tea. Lunch was delicious - Alan and his team made us an African lunch. In the afternoon we went to the hall where we did African drumming, singing and dancing. We had such fun and we really loved dressing up for our special day too.
To help Year 4 celebrate their “Africa” theme, the Holroyd Howe team of Alan, Tracey, Kerry and Mireck created a colourful menu to compliment the girls’ vibrant costumes! Mrs Brett also pitched in with a vivid display.
The menu included Algerian chicken with saffron and honey, Nigerian yam and scrambled tofu, Egyptian falafel jacket potato, Senegalese lemon and mint couscous, Kenyan green beans and okra, African baked malvas pudding. The pudding was the favourite, but the girls were very good about trying everything!
The Holroyd Howe team also prepared some lovely canapes to serve to our guests at the Janet Rose talk on Thursday, and they went down a treat.
Alan and the team wish everyone a happy and sunny half term!
