Aliens Love Molokhia

Our Year 3 Native Arabic Speakers have been working very hard on the story ‘Aliens Love Molokhia’ in which the aliens steal all the Molokhia (a traditional dish from the Middle East, see below) and the humans have to work out how to get it all back. The children had great fun acting out the play while improving their Arabic language skills.

According to organicfacts.net: “Molokhia is only one name of dozens of this leafy plant of the Corchorus species, which is commonly utilized in Egyptian and Middle Eastern cuisine.”
