We have come to our 9th week of learning about that kid Joseph, from the Bible. You know? the dreamer with the colourful coat?
Joseph warns Pharaoh that a famine will be over all the land for 7 years. Luckily, before these nasty 7 years, there will be a good 7 years where the crops will do well and there will be more food than anyone needs. Joseph advises the king to store up extra food in that time of plenty and share it among the people when food became scarce.
Today the i61 kids did a similar thing. Armed with our own pound coins, we left the classroom and went shopping. We had fun choosing food and getting to use the self-service checkouts and instead of eating what we bought we are going to give it to the local foodbank to feed people in crisis. Lots of fun for a very good cause!
