We woke up to a beautiful morning and the sun shining (for a change!).
Amanda, Steven and I headed to Nankumba TDC for our third day of teacher training. As we embarked upon the TDC and school, we drove onto their football pitch and I immediately took photos to share with our pupils at Crookston Castle as they love their football!
Our training was an exciting and active session as our teacher colleagues were fully involved and keen to participate. We were able to see the library at Nankumba Primary School which was well organised and divided into sections.
We shared this with the TDC group to show them how they might organise a library within their own school. We shared experiences with our colleagues about our love of reading and ways to try instil this love of reading for our young learners.
As our training drew to a close, we went outside for some singing to end the session. This has been an engaging and fun way to share a different strategy with our teachers.
The Malawian teachers were able to share examples of songs and dances they do with their own class.
Today was another excellent learning experience for myself and the teaching team. Each session brings new experiences and conversations with our colleagues in Malawi. At the end of the session, I successfully secured a new pen pal at two different Malawian schools which means when I return to Glasgow, our pupils at Crookston Castle will have pupils to write to.
