HANDA’S SURPRISE

Léman International School Nursery Teachers Ms. Kyla Kin and Ms. Bronwyn Jacobs embarked on creating a wonderful set of activities based on the story of Handa’s Surprise, by Eileen Brown, in collaboration with NAE colleagues.

Handa

They have become our very own Léman Story Sack pioneers. It could not have been a better choice for students to share across all Nord Anglia Schools, representing so many aspects of our philosophy. This story introduces children to different cultures and speaks of many things from delicious fruits. Students are encouraged to try tasting different fruits, naming them both in English and their respective mother tongue.

  • Handa

The joy of friendship is encouraged throughout the story through an element of constant surprise page after page. Sharing and caring on a walking journey, teaching kindness through simple gifts of fruit being taken far and a range of African animals dipping into Handa’s basket one by one bring joy and added surprise. Handa’s Surprise is a teachers’ dream story book as it enables teachers to explore and expand on areas of learning such as maths, language, art, dance and safari adventures!  The various African animals Handa encounters along the way add to the layers of teaching and learning. Handa, a young girl from a village in Kenya, exposes her strong ability to balance a basket on her head throughout the story. Students had fun acting out their balancing skills using bean bags on their heads instead just like Handa.

  • Handa

Léman students not only enjoyed the story but used the very same fruits to develop their understanding of shape, form, sorting and counting. Some had fun sorting the animals from big to small while others touched and felt different fruit.

They made masks and acted out different sounds of each animal they recognised. Their surprise and connection to virtual learning was brought very close to home when the children recognised their very own Léman teachers on the screen. Nursery students were captivated and could not wait tell others they had seen Ms. Bronwyn and Ms. Kyla, their very own teachers on the big screen. 

In the current era of Virtual Learning, with student’s homes becoming classrooms overnight, it is increasing valuable to show our children that those in different cultures all around the world are growing strong with the challenges of Covid-19, just like them.
