Learning Objectives
Pupils to know how HIV is transmitted
Manuela set off to go to kigalama primary school, on her way she realized that she had forgotten the Ipad, she decided to come back and pick it this also affected her time of arrival. When Manuela reached at school, she found when the pupils were waiting for her,she entered and was warmly welcomed by the pupils. She started by giving out the past papers for the post test that pupils did previously, after that she appreciated the pupils for having performed well in the test. After that Manuela asked the pupils about the assignment given to them, Manuela started with group A, B and finally C, pupils were able to share out their findings. Later Manuela Started her lesson by explaining to the pupils that for HIV to be transmitted their must be two things for example the fluids and the port of entry or any open bleeding wound, when those two things are present then transmission can occur, she went ahead and listed down some of the fluids for example; Blood ,Vaginal fluids, Breast Milk and Semen. After all that, Manuela taught the pupils about how HIV is transmitted from one person to another person at the same time. she also taught about how HIV can be prevented from one person to another person. At the end of the lesson Manuela advised the pupils to abstain from sexual immorality so that to be free from HIV transmission. Challenges When Manuela reached the school she was in a Hurry and the driver too, so the driver forgot to close one of the windows, one stubborn child decided whom we don’t know upto now to fix a stick in the lock where the car key is supposed to be put when starting a car.It was a very big problem for Manuela as it took a while until the driver was able to communicate to his mechanics then he was helped and later on he managed to fix the car, this incident affected her arrival time in Jinja.

1607 Manuela had two teachers that participated in teaching the pupils during Life Skills lesson. Manuela is now teaching along with the teachers so that by the time she leaves that school those two teachers will already be in position to teach the pupils in her absence
1610 Manuela believes that pupils some times learn through illustrations that is why she was trying to illustrate how HIV is transmitted from one person to another person consider the fluids and the portal of entry is available.
