In this topic the children will be learning about being ‘On Safari’. They will look at the different animals that are found in different environments and compare them. The children will learn that animals, including humans, move, feed, grow, use their senses and reproduce. They will compare where they live to life in Kenya; including climate, school and food. The children will also get to make animal puppets.
This English unit links to a Power of Reading topic looking at different stories by the same author and we will be looking at the stories by Mary Hoffman, such as ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘Grace and Family’. We will also look at another narrative unit on extended stories and read other texts by the same author.
We will produce animal fact files – in an ICT database.
We will revisit time with a focus on problem solving questions.
We will also be looking at measuring length, mass and capacity and our ability to choose the correct equipment for each.
We will also revisit position and direction to follow maps around Kenya.
