Last week the Year 5 and 7 students had the opportunity to learn together in a joint lesson under a programme called vertical learning. The French and Kiswahili teachers had mixed ability grouping, then merged them to form larger groups comprising of both Kiswahili and French students. Within the groups, the year 5s and 7, taught each other the register used at the shops in buying and selling goods, both in Kiswahili and French. After learning the lines, the different groups did role plays. It was great to see teamwork where group members reminded each other forgotten phrases.
