Tanzania is introduced to Warberry Academy through storytelling art and music.

Year 1 pupils from Warberry Academy in Torquay had an exciting introduction to their Global Families week with storytelling, music and art from Tanzania.

2016-05-18 09.19.39 -wpJane Habermehl from Devon Development Education created a backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro alongside the jungle scene and large painted animals for the retelling of the story, ‘How the Leopard Got His Spots.’ After being encouraged to join in the telling of the story the children drummed and danced to a video of traditional Tanzanian bongo dancing and were then inspired to make their own art by the pictures of the Tinga, Tinga art of that country.

The teacher wrote, ‘Thank you so much for creating such an exciting start to our topic! One child, on returning to the classroom, said, "that was the best thing ever!" Another said, "I can't wait for Jane to come back and help us become tinga tinga artists!"’

Jane can provide stories and crafts from countries around the globe. Please contact DDE for details and bookings.
