This term, White Tigers are trying to answer the question “How is Africa different?”
Our four different outcomes that we will be completing throughout the term are:
To design and create an African Goli mask.
To write a letter to include inside the 'Shoebox'
To contribute to and donate a 'Shoebox' for the charity -'Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child'
To research and create a non-chronological report about an endangered animal that lives in Africa.
We will be exploring various different topics in Africa. We will be looking at where in the world Africa is, what countries are within Africa and the surrounding oceans. We will also be focussing on African animals, African artists and how charities help poorer parts of the world, and doing our bit to help contribute too. Our research will encompass Art, History, Geography, English, Maths and ICT as we work towards answering our essential question.
We have started off the topic by focussing on what Africa is, where in the world it is located and using atlases to research what countries are within the continent of Africa. Following on from that, we have started to research different animals that live in different parts of Africa, and will be creating a non-chronological report about them in the coming weeks.
In Maths, children have been developing their knowledge of place value. Working hard and taking new challenges in their stride, White Tigers are proving to be budding mathematicians!
Our classroom is already looking fantastic! Our African tree in the middle of the classroom has all of our handprints on the trunk, and some fantastic pieces of writing have already been hung up on the walls!
