WATOTO CHOIR DO THEIR LESSONS AT THE RAGGED SCHOOL

After three energetic concerts over the weekend, Monday was a rest day for the children of the Watoto Choir spent relaxing with their host families in Chesterfield. But Tuesday is school day and where better to host them than at The Ragged School.  The sun is pouring through the windows which doesn't make for a terrific photo but here they are in the midst of their English comprehension exercise all working hard. 
As a former primary school teacher, it was fun to watch them learn their phonics using the same scheme as many of our local schools - with all the same actions - but rather more expertise at miming drumming for the 'd' sound.

 A flat tyre delayed their departure so the church also had to become a makeshift canteen for them to eat their packed lunches before they headed off to perform at a church in Lincoln that evening.
