As part of their launch event, the year 4 children left the country to travel to Rwanda. They had to leave their classrooms immediately, taking all of their belongings. The children faced a number of challenges along their journey and shared their thoughts and feelings with each other. When they reached their destination, they watched traditional dances from Rwanda and researched the country. All the children especially enjoyed the event and were able to share key facts they learnt about the country. The event allowed the children to put themselves into the shoes of Christophe from the focus English text ‘Christophe’s Story’.
