Preshute pupils learn about life in The Gambia

Preshute pupils role play travelling to The GambiaPreshute pupils role play travelling to The GambiaPupils at Preshute Primary School spent two days last week learning about life in The Gambia. The school has been linked with two Gambian schools, one Christian and one Muslim, for a number of years and several Preshute pupils have Gambian pen-pals.

Organised by teacher, Sarah Grant, RE co-ordinator at Preshute School, the two Gambian days also enabled the whole school to learn more about the religions of Islam and Christianity.

Pupils explored facts and information about The Gambia in order to compare and contrast life there with life in England. 

They also role played a journey to The Gambia.  Pupils created their own passports and then experienced going through Passport Control.  Year 6 pupils took the roles of Passport Officers.

The children boarded their imaginary flight to Banjul International Airport, with special aircraft flying effects courtesy of Headteacher, Claire Hann-Perkins.  They landed in Banjul ready to learn about all things Gambian.

Sarah Grant told Marlborough.news, “The children led their own learning and chose to find about, amongst other topics, Gambian animals, art, their coat of arms and flag and the climate.” 

“The Preshute pen-pals also wrote to their pen pals in The Gambia.  Every child tried fresh and dried mango as mango is a fruit that grows prolifically in The Gambia.”

“What a fantastic opportunity for all the children at Preshute School to broaden their knowledge of the world that we all live in.”
