We'll be starting Year 4 by developing our mapping skills and learning about key aspects of physical and human geography in Africa. We'll find out all about different climates, describe climates of Africa and compare these with other continents. As the term progresses we will research the Kalahari Desert and the countries it covers. We'll learn what it's like to live in the desert by researching the people that live in and near it and examining how it affects their lives. We have planned some exciting art sessions which will develop our skills in using pencils, oil pastels and watercolours before producing our own desert landscapes. We'll also be exploring Khoisan paintings and rock art as inspiration for our own Kalahari animal artwork.
