Hi everyone, we have a very exciting week ahead with our globetrotting project! This week the children will be learning about Africa, where they will explore some of the animals that live in the African plains on their sandbox Safari. They will explore landmarks such as Table Mountain, the Nile River, Timbuktu, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Mount Kilamanjaro & the Avenue of Baobabs. There will be the opportunity to listen to some African safari music and some wonderful stories such as ‘Mouse Tales – Tutankamouse’.
The children will also design and create colourful African necklaces using mixed media. Feel free to send in pictures, artefacts, or information if you or anyone you know has been there.
The Seven Continents Poem
North America, South America joined in the west,
Europe and Asia meet together,
And on Africa, they rest.
Australia stands alone, floating down below,
And Antarctica is the loneliest, where no one wants to go!
