Year 2 have enjoyed finding out about life in Kenya, comparing the lives of Evangeline, who lives in rural Kenya with that of Nana who lives in the capital city of Nairobi. The children compared their day to the girls and looked for similarities and differences. Photographs, books and clips have been used to discover amazing facts about the human and physical features, animals on safari, food and farming, homes as well as tourism.
The children have produced A3 maps of Kenya, animal hand puppets, a Masai Mara painted shield and a model of a Masai house.
The hand puppets have inspired the children to design and create a puppet show theatre alongside developing storylines to act out. One even involved a lost tiger who strayed away from India and ended up in Kenya!
Sadly, it’s ‘Goodbye’ Kenya but ‘Hello’ to our new topic of Plants and Animals after half term. WW
