    Has anyone found Handa's surprise to be too "young" for a Year 2 group? I can't quite decide if it will be engaging enough for them..
  2. I've used it with Year 1. I just think it depends what you are going to do with it. Link it in with an Africa topic. Fair trade perhaps. Healthy eating topic (very obvious) but a chance to get children to try loads of really different fruit. African dance and culture, music. Obviously you could use other texts. Part of a journey theme. Map out her journey. Link to journeys that they make every day. Where do they go, what do they see - environmental theme perhaps. Good luck!
