Hi All, A couple of days ago we took all of the sponsored children who attend Mtwapa Academy to Bamburi Nature Trail, this is like a cross between a mini safari park and a zoo. We thought it would be nice to let all the sponsored children get to know each other a bit better as well as having a bit of a treat. We gave them a disposable camera to take their own photos but we’ll put some of ours on here so you can see.
Everyone was very excited and we all got the chance to see lots of animals and learn all about them with the tour guide. The children wrote some sentences or paragraphs about their favourite animals, so we’ll include them below for you to enjoy! They are exactly as the children wrote them and they only did one draft so hopefully you will understand them!
