Why is Africa so hot?

Please see below for information about our first topic in Year 2

Our meerkats!

We started off our year reading the book 'Meerkat Mail'. The children did lots of activities based around the book such as creating postcards or diaries and we even created our own meerkats!
This we were exploring different styles of African art. The class looked carefully at lots of different African style patterns such as on clothing, jewellery, masks and even animals skin. We created our own tile which we then used to help us print, creating our own African tunics.
