An African rural village

Please watch the video. It is a story that is set in an Kenyan village. It will give you some idea what life is like for these people. We are going to be comparing our own lives to the life of people living in rural Africa next week. I then want you to draw your own interpretation of a rural African village. There is an example for you to look at.


Please choose a reading book from the Oxford Owl website to read.

You can print off the grid that I have uploaded, however a pencil and paper will be equally as good. Please read the zoom rules before the meeting. Thank you to all the children who emailed your work yesterday. I hope the feedback was useful. Keep up the hard work everyone.

We have found out about New Zealand today. Can you remember who were the first people to discover the island? Yes, it was the Maori people who arrived by canoe from Polynesia. These people were warriors and often painted their faces to make them look fierce. Look at the pictures and then draw your own design on the mask outline.
