1. Planning

For my Citizenship Activity, I formed a dedicated team with 6 other girls of Year 10, to volunteer at Turnfurlong School and work with the aim of bringing a flavour of Kenya and Kenyan life to Year One students at Turnfurlong School.

Of course the main aim of our activity was to bring Kenya to life for the Year 1s of Turnfurlong School. We aimed to create a day where the children got a real taste of what Kenya and Africa in general is really like, through visual aid, games, crafts, music and many other activities. Our aim was to start them off on becoming globally aware about situation of the rest to the world, as were told by a teacher (who was guiding us through the activity) that children in year One are quite unaware of places other than the country that they are living in.

Another aim for the activity was to work as part of a team and learn how to co-operate with each other and the children of Turnfurlong and create a successful day.

The general aim of the activity was to became better citizens and by giving out knowledge to other people, as well as practise global citizenship by bringing awareness of the rest of the world to our fellow citizens in year 1 of Turnfurlong.

Our activity is to do with Topic 1 of the Citizenship course: School, Work and the Local Community, as we are going to teach school children. And it was a group activity as we were a team of 6 girls.
