For this 1/2 of term, we are using Africa as the stimulus for a lot of our learning. Below here, you will find information, tasks and challenges to help you broaden your knowledge of this vast continent.
We have been learning about South Africa, apartheid and Nelson Mandela. Below is a ppt presentation split into 3 parts. Each part has a task associated with it to help broaden your understanding of what the apartheid regime in South Africa meant and how Nelson Mandela had a significant influence on the fight against apartheid and racism.
Once again, our science topic has a link to our Africa topic as we are learning about adaptations. We will be looking at the conditions in different environments and the characteristics that animals have that help them to survive.
