Africa topic

1st May 2019

Our topic this half term has been ‘Africa’. Our Art and DT lessons have included designing and making our own African wall hanging. We used hessian, 2d shapes and paint. We also included African animals in our designs too.

Freya’s Dad from Badgers Class came in to talk to Year 1 about his time in Africa. He worked in Africa for a long time and helped local communities. He helped to build schools and he also helped provide villages with clean water to drink. The children had a go at filtering water to see if they could clean dirty water using a filtering system.
