Supa Modo

On Wednesday 4th September, Primary 7 went to Mareel. We went to see the Supa Modo, which had been brought to Shetland for Screen Play.

It is a Kenyan film about a girl called Jo.ย  Obsessed with Jackie Chan and action films, nine-year-old Jo dreams of being a superhero, but time is not on her side. When the doctors reveal that she is terminally ill, Jo leaves the hospital and returns home to be with her mum and sister. While her mum insists that she stay inside and rest, her sister has different plans. With the entire village’s support, they decide to make dreams a reality and turn Jo into the superhero they know she is.

We really enjoyed the film and afterwards had a chance to make our own superhero masks.

Isaiah thought it was a really good film, it was really good the way everyone helped her in the film and all the village froze.

Becca said it was really different and it showed us how some people in Kenya live.

Thank you to Milly and Martin, who came with us to Mareel.

Kenyan Penpals

During the October holidays Ms Scanlan received an email from Lomayana school, full of wonderful messages and pictures for the class. It is always lovely to see the beautiful designs and drawings that they send and itโ€™s great to hear back from them all and see how they are getting on.

Here is a photo of the class with their messages.

Maasai Village Meeting

We have been finding out about the Maasai people and the impact of tourism in their region. We had a village meeting and everyone had to play a role. There were village elders, park rangers, hotel workers, young maasai, shopkeepers and ecolodge owners. We found out about the lives of the people and then had a meeting to explain what the problems were. There were some really good presentations and lots of questions too.
