Our Enhanced Learning

Animal Hunter

 

We had a visit from the Animal Hunter! We had the chance to meet lots of different animals and minibeasts that live in the Rainforest habitats of our wonderful world, which was very exciting.

Handa's Surprise

I am a young girl.

I live in a hot country in a continent beginning with A.

I have a friend called Akeyo.

I have a selection of tropical fruits in my basket.

On my way to visit my friend I meet a variety of wild animals.

Who am I?

 

We located the seven continents and five oceans of our world.  We also researched different animals in our world and used our geographical knowledge to identify the continents that they live in. We then researched some African animals and used the information to write animal riddles.  You can see our riddles on our lovely Handa's Surprise display in the corridor outside the hall.
