    Hi

    I was in Jamaica at Easter and I visited a school. I also have family in Jamaica, one of whom does charity work for the school I visited so may be able to set up contacts. I have pictures and stuff so if it can be of any help, please let me know.

  6. I'm currently teaching in Key Stage 1, Year 2 and each class is adopting a country when we start back to school in September, my class are learning all about Jamaica and I wondered if there was anyway we could write to or email your contacts. I know it's cheeky but am desperate for some help!!
     
  7. Dear Mad musician,

    If its still possible and easy for you, I would love to receive ideal pictures to tecah Key stage children about where jamacia is.

    Thanks

  8. Hi Sarah,

    I am currently on placement in Year 2 and wondered whether you happen to still have any resources easily to hand to teach about where Jamacia is? Are you still teaching year 2?

    Thanks in advance
