Wild Africa

Book of the Term



This term we will be reading the book 'Lila and the Secret of Rain'. Through this we will be learning about the country of Kenya and the continent of Africa. Across the term we will be developing different methods of writing, including the creation of fact files and non-chronological reports. We will also be looking at African poetry, including the use of 'call and respond' songs. 


During this term we will also be comparing the differences between countries such as Kenya and our own by looking at their geographies. We will also be exploring African art to further understand African culture. Year 1 will develop their knowledge of animals in Science by looking at African animals, their structures and their diets. In Music we will be using our voices expressively and creatively to sing songs in preparation for our KS1 Music Festival.
