African Masks

For topic homework this term, some of the children chose to make their own African masks. They are bright, colourful and extremely eye-catching!

Elephant Hunting Leaflets

In English, the children learnt about how African elephants are at risk of extinction because they are being hunted for their tusks. The children wrote leaflets to raise awawareness to the issue and to persuade others not to hunt elephants.

Fairtrade Treats

For our topic homework in Autumn 2, some children chose to bake a Fairtrade treat by following a recipe. We shared these within the class and everybody enjoyed them!
