What do you know about Africa?

Although we only had a few days in school this week, we have learned a lot about our new topic 'African Adventure'.

We have spent our Literacy lessons reading a book called 'Africa is Not a Country' and learning about what life is like for children in lots of different countries in Africa. We also had a topic afternoon where we designed and made Masai shields; created safari narrations; used VR headsets to explore different landscapes; learned some main languages spoken in Africa and developed our African drumming skills.

In Maths, we have continued to learn about multiplication and division and have been using formal methods and a variety of mental methods to help us calculate more efficiently. In PSHE, we looked at team work and how we can learn to trust each other including breaking and rebuilding trust with others. In our Science lessons this half-term, we will be learning about sound. We went on a sound survey around the school to see what we could hear and discussed the different pitches and volumes we experienced.
