Ugandan meals and water melons

Good to hear about our friends at Liss who have been studying about our Ugandan meals and how we prepare.
Talking about water melons, this was a discussion by Primary Six class today in the morning. Water melons, tomatoes and onions are the main crops we are planting this season in our Kafuro gardens.
Water melons are very sweet and are thirst- curing crops.
Planting a water melon, we buy seedlings from the seed store ( packed seeds grow better than those we get from fruits and dry to be planted). We make a 2 feet by two feet ditch, we plant in four seeds of water melon when it’s our wet season like how it is becoming now.  It takes four to seven days to germinate, then we care about directing them to different directions as the spacing in about one metre from one ditch to another, then spraying starts as they are very much attacked by pests.
At around two months and fifteen days (75 days) our best water melons are ready for harvesting and fresh to eat.

We are reminded to eat fruits after washing them clean

Talking about Muchomo, its so nice when made by an expert. We read about our teacher’s wife and family on making best muchomos in the region. They are based at New Life Safaris.

Wishing you all the best, keep us informed about the food you make.

Cooking Ugandan – style meals

Today Liss children in Yr 6 created their own Ugandan-style meals in groups. The children used a range of ingredients that they had tasted the previous week, but also used water melon, pineapple and rice. The children worked very hard to create balanced meals and the photos can be seen below.

And now a question for our Ugandan friends. Evie, in Rowan Class, wants to know how long it takes to grow a water melon from seed to full size? Can anybody help her?

Ugandan – style food tasting

At Liss, as we approach the end of our Uganda topic, we set the children a design technology task – to plan and make a Ugandan – style meal. Before the children can do this, they have to taste Ugandan food. Mr Stanley was very busy in the Liss kitchen making the following:

Roast IRISH potatoes

Roast Sweet potatoes



Banana chips



The children tasted the food and had to complete an evaluation. The next step will be to plan and create their own Ugandan meals. We will report to you on their progress!

Uganda Travel Guides

As part of our topic on Uganda, the children have been using the evidence from their research on the country to write their own travel guides for Miss Duncan, who will be visiting Uganda for the first time in July. The children have given Miss Duncan a copy of the letters they have sent her.

We would like to know what Ugandan pupils think of our travel guides. Do they give an accurate reflection of Uganda?

Current update from Kafuro

Greetings to all our friends in the World,

We thank everyone who spares his precious time to read our blogs and witness from what we are learning together.

Liss community, our special friends, we are proud of all the activities you do.

On an assembly, Mr. Yowasi Byaruhanga has been updating about progress Liss Junior School has making both in studying about Uganda and sport. In sports, a hand of applause to Toby and all other Liss participants who have continued to uplift Liss Junior School’s name.

All of us at Kafuro Primary School, we are very lucky to study about England and our friends.  In addition, we have learnt a lot from you about even our own country and even Africa from our interaction with you.

We are training very hard for friendly matches with schools in the conservation cup,
We are the Tag Rugby champions for the last two years. We are training very hard to be the best champions in this year.

In weather, we have been experiencing a dry spell for almost two and a half months. February is usually a rainy month but this time the conditions has changed.
In this, Mr. Yowasi Byaruhanga has alerted us again about the facts about global warming and weather changes due human activities. Most of our school children have been mobilized to plant at least one tree every month.
Buying seedlings is far better and quicker than making a nursery bed.
We have selected a representative for every class to coordinate the process of all our pupils in school planting a tree every month and clearing and promoting the environmental conservation.

Thanks for reading our blog.
If you have been reading our blog in silence, well done, but we kindly recognize you and thank you. Could you please write a small comment for us to hear from you?? 🙂
