Speakers' Corner Gambia powerpoint

  1. 1. Here is the world. Can anyone tell us where Africa is?
  2. 2. The Gambia is the smallest mainland country in Africa. It’s on the west coast, the red arrow shows you where it is
  3. 3. It is a long thin country 40 miles north and south of the river Gambia.
  4. 4. Our school is twinned with Samba Njabeh school in the Gambia. Miss Riddle, one of our Larch centre teachers, went over to visit. Their facilities are a little different to ours. We’ve got some images of them show you.
  5. 5. This is their library...no iPads here!
  6. 6. These are the toilets.
  7. 7. This is the kitchen.
  8. 8. While Miss Riddle was in the Gambia, she helped the students with their English. They value learning languages as it could help them to secure a job.
  9. 9. The school does not have its own water supply. Every day the students and staff at the school have to collect their daily supply. We often take things in our lives for granted - imagine not having a running tap?
  10. 10. Miss Riddle did some active literacy with the young people while she was there - here they are enjoying reenacting ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’.
  11. 11. The young people at Samba Njabeh have to do all their class work in their exercise books or on the blackboard. They copy the maths from the blackboard into their exercise book and work them out.
  12. 12. They learnt to play volleyball!
  13. 13. There are lots of pupils at Samba Njabeh and because there are not enough classrooms, some children come in the morning and others in the afternoon. Most classrooms have 45 to 50 pupils. How does this compare to your class sizes?
  14. 14. At lunchtime, the students like to play in the sand.
  15. 15. They also grow vegetables and fruit for the market.
  16. 16. The wildlife is Gambia is astounding - here are some examples of the creatures Miss Riddle saw.
