We are very excited about tomorrow. Some of the other classes are coming to see our presentations and art projects. The class were busy practising their presentations today. They did a fantastic job. Here's a sneak preview of how we have been getting on!
We learned about the lion in school and I love learning about animals.
Lions are colour-blind and cannot make out animals if they go around in packs. For example the Zebra, if the Zebra goes out on its own the Lion can make out it's shape and chase after it.
The Lion is the second biggest cat, it roars as tiger purrs. It's roar can be heard for up to 8km(5miles).
The Lion has a mane but a Lioness does not.
Lions are the second biggest cat in the world after the tiger. They live in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Lions can grow up to 9ft and can weigh 250kg. Lions are very fierce and aggresive but as a disadvantage as it is colour blind. But lions are still very dangerous and sneaky as it usually hunts for food at night. Usually the lioness does the hunting as the lion stays with the cubs and protects them. When the lioness comes back with food , the cubs eat the leftovers and the lion and the lioness eats first. When the cubs turn 2 years old it leaves its parents and live by itself.
Kenya is a country in Africa.
The capital of Kenya is Nairobi as shown above with the star beside it.
A boy from a town in Nairobi is named Charles has gotten the life he needed he has been able to go to school and is now learning multiplication. he is eleven years old and lives with his aunt and cousins.
Kids have to get up at 5:30 to go to school. It is a 30 to 45 minute walk for them. They do not have fresh water like we have and have to go to the well for it. Kids have to go shopping on their own to get food for dinner.
We both get to go to school and get an education.
Charles loves to play football and football is very popular in our school. We both have learnt multiplication.
I feel it is very hard for people in Africa but if they have enough money they could have a great life and I think Charles does.
Jambo (Hello) Habari (How are you?Whats the news)
Nzuri (I am fine)
today i was learning how to speak Swahalli.
Swahalli is Kenya's version of Irish. For instance
Dia duit (Hello) Conas atá tú? (How are you) Tá mé go maith (I am good)
I was learning about a boy named Charles, he lives in Kenya. Every morning he gets up at 5:30 then he eats breakfast. He lives with his aunt and cousin he leaves with his cousin to go to school at six it takes him 30 to 45 minutes to get to school in school he does lots of work, but after some children leave, he stays to get extra work done.
His life is very different to mine
I wish I could do something to help him!
This is Charles he is one of the lucky people in Africa. He gets an education but he has to wake up at 5:30 and it takes him 30-40 minutes to walk to school. He life with his Auntie and his Cousin.
Lots of children in Africa have no food or water in Africa.
Kids in Kenya have to wake up
at 5:30 to get to school were as we
can just drive or walk which takes a much shorter amount of time.
If kids in Africa are lucky they can go to school and so do we.
Boys there play soccer and so do people here.
People in Ireland are starving like some homeless people and people there are starving too.
