Llanelli children get a taste of Africa at library


A group of Llanelli school children have been treated to a taste of Africa at their local library.
The reception class at Ysgol Ffwrnes enjoyed an interactive Handa’s surprise story session at Llanelli children’s library this week.
Upon their arrival pupils were greeted by the sounds of African music. To help them get into character the children wore masks and during the story joined in by acting out parts of the book.
From the library the children made a detour via a local supermarket to purchase some of the fruits mentioned in the story to make fruit kebabs back at school.
Children’s Librarian, Catrin Simon, said:“As well as being an engaging story with lovely illustrations, Handa’s Surprise - or Syrpreis Handa in Welsh - helps children discover another culture through its setting and the wild animals and food it introduces.”
