Year 1's African Adventures!

Year 1 have had a very exciting start to the new term and our new topic, African Adventure. Our big question is, "Would you like to live in Africa?" and we started to consider this by researching a village in Zambia and learning about how people live there. In Literacy we have been looking at tortoises in preparation for our class text, How the Tortoise got its Shell. We went to the Immersion Room to study tortoises and wrote some fantastic descriptions of them. In Art we were captivated by a video of African dancers wearing masks and we made beautiful observational drawings of some African masks. In Maths we have been learning about 3D shapes and we used cardboard 3D shapes to make our own African animals. We can't wait to learn more about Africa next week!
