Our Grade R learners role played the book “Spot goes to the shop” lately. Mom, played by Ayola, drew up a shopping list for her two children played by Aminathi and Diego. Spot was played by Lihle, the shopkeepers were Thamsanqa and Shilo.
They were asked to make a shopping trolley at home, Deyondre brought hers to school.
We love the effort that went into making this :-)
