3Y’s Africa Assembly – Thursday 6th February 2020

3Y took us on an amazing adventure to Africa during their assembly. We met the animals of the Savanna, rowed the river Nile, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro quickly descending to end in an African village watching a traditional dance and listening to them sing a traditional song. Well done 3Y for an informative and lively assembly.

Our favourite games are “Jump Jim Joe”, “Bungalow”, “John Kanakanaka”, “Here Comes Sally” and “Tanczymy Labada”.
