This term we will continue using Power of Reading to encourage the love of reading and writing in our children
We will be working on a book called 'Lila and the Secret of Rain' by David Conway and Jude Daly.
Lila’s Kenyan village is suffering a terrible drought. When Lila hears her mother say that ‘without water there can be no life’ she sets out on a quest to uncover the secret of rain and so save the village. This modern folk tale reminds us of how necessary and precious water is for survival and provides opportunity to explore together some larger themes of conservation.
Our new topic is Kenya/Africa.
We will be learning about the geography of Kenya through focusing on the main human and physical features of the country. We will learn about the key geographical features of the country including Kenyan wildlife, landscapes and culture. We will also learn about the similarities and
differences between Kenya and the UK along with continuing to develop their geographical skills through a variety of fun and interactive activities.
