The children in Year 1 have been reading the book, "Handa's Surprise" and learning all about fruits that Handa carried to her friend . Watch it on Youtube if you wish,
type "HANDA'S SURPRISE - Picture Book- Animation "
As part of their Design and Technology curriculum, " children should understand where food comes from," Year 1 found that Handa's fruits in the story all came from Handa's country- Kenya. They tried all to the fruits mentioned to help them describe the fruity flavours. Then the children had to use adjectives to describe the taste. Eileen Browne uses many adjectives in the story which really help the children to appreciate the value of descriptive language in their writing.
