Day 8, 31.01.20 Kolkata
Today I have been back into school teaching. The class was bigger than Tuesday with about 70 children attending lessons. In the class the ages ranged from about 2 years old up until about 10 years old. As you might expect we did phonics first. With some of the older children, I was teaching them to use their phonics to write words down. For some of the children this was the first time they had done this - they did very well! The naughty toucan puppet helped with the phonics lesson and as you can see he really did help!
After phonics we taught maths - on Tuesday we counted to 10 in English and Bengali, today we counted to 20. In the video you will see some of the children showing the teacher their Bengali skills.
