Empiricism came into its own on Monday, when we were visited by Usifu Jalloh from Masai Cultural Arts as part of our ‘Around the World’ themed Book Week.

In our whole school assembly, we (children and staff) were completely immersed as we were transported to Africa via a variety of countries, in a magic peanut shell! This journey set the scene perfectly for each phases’ workshop, which were both educational and entertaining.

Usifu is a gifted musician as well as a talented storyteller and we all thoroughly enjoyed his dynamic performance that celebrated the rich heritage of African storytelling traditions that easily with the stories. Usifu releases his first book ‘Air’ on Amazon this week and we wish him every success.
