Last week these children explored China and Uganda from their own home and were able to ask and answer their own questions by touching, feeling, smelling and wearing the artefacts. Here are some of their comments:
‘The children in Uganda are so creative’
‘What do people cook on the stove?’
‘What’s the bird on the flag?’
‘If there is Chinese writing are there also Chinese numbers?’
‘I can tell Granny and Grandad which Chinese animal is their zodiac sign’
