Ms Hynes Junior Infants – Handa’s Surprise

Feb 21, 2024

Ms Hynes junior infants had a busy month in January learning all about The Market in Africa. They did lots of reading and study on the topic and then examined some of the foods we might find if we went to a market stall in Africa. There were lots of new fruits and vegetables the children had never seen. A particular favourite was plantain. It looks like a banana and feels like a banana but it tastes like a potato! 

The children then read the story book Handa’s Surprise and recreated the cover photo using the real life fruit to make a print artwork. They all did a fabulous job and lots of fun was had!
