This terms topic for Year 1 is Africa and children have started to explore the continent through various activities:
They have been tasting fruit linked to the ‘Handa’s Surprise’ story. They thought about how the fruit tasted, felt and looked like using adjectives. They studied African artefacts and fabrics by doing observational drawings. Then found Africa and the United Kingdom on maps, using atlases to help them. Finally then moved on to sorting animals from the United Kingdom and Africa.
What a busy week!
