Kiswahili News

Year 10 Kiswahili students have been learning different topics which include letter writing. In order to spice things up, we revisited a subtopic that we did towards the end of last term; recipes. So in the DT room last Friday we made chapati (flat bread). There is a Kiswahili proverb that says ‘jifya moja haliinjiki chungu’ (one stone cannot support a cooking pot). And so Flo, Salim and Tenisha had to work together, and sure enough the end product was some savoury soft chapati, that they were kind enough to share with their classmates. The ingredients included unga ya ngano (wheat flour), karoti (carrots), mafuta (cooking oil), sukari and chumvi. The students also came across vocabulary like, kanda’ (knead), kikaango (frying pan) and tandaza (spread). Hongera Year 10
