Getting creative with twinning

To introduce twinning we ran a number of activities in our classes. To start off we brainstormed everything we knew about England, Palestine, Camden and Twinning and encouraged the boys to draw and write what they knew about each place. See photos below….. Some of the boys drew Big Ben and wrote the Beatles and lots of them drew the Dome of the Rock and the wall. This activity worked well and the boys were very enthusiastic about drawing and seeing the other groups present what they had drawn.  In the next lesson we turned this into a group quiz, in which the boys had to answer 10 questions about Palestine and the UK and about twinning. Although they were very confused at first they welcomed the new idea with enthusiasm.
