Anansi and the Tiger

We have started work on Anansi stories in English this week! Anansi stories are about a mischievous man (who can also turn into a spider) and his adventures. We have learnt how Anansi stories originated in West Africa but were brought to to the Caribbean by slaves. We discussed how the slave trade is a sad, but important part of the history of the Caribbean and Grenada. We then began looking in detail at the story of Anansi and the Tiger, which tells why all stories belong to Anansi. Here are some photos of us making freeze frames of important moments in the story!
