Homework and supporting your child at home

Autumn 1 - Window on the World


To start this half term, we will be developing our mapping skills and learning about key aspects of physical and human geography in Africa. We'll find out about different climates and describe climates of Africa and compare these with other continents. Furthermore, we’ll research the Kalahari Desert and investigate and share different Kalahari countries with others. After that, we’ll find out what it’s like to live in a desert, research the real people that live in and near deserts and how affects their lives. During art sessions, we’ll be creating collage flags from different African countries before developing our skills using a range of techniques to create effects using pencils, oil pastels and different ways of using watercolours. In addition, we’ll explore Khoisan paintings and rock art before designing artwork of a Kalahari animal inspired by Khoisan work.
