On Safari

Our topic this term will be focusing on classifying and examining the life cycles and habitats of animals in Africa.  We will also look at traditional art from different areas of Africa, including batik from East Africa.  

We will be using what we learn on our safari and digital filming and editing techniques to create a documentary which will make David Attenborough proud.
