Our first topic in Year 6 is Amazing Africa. We have been learning all about the continent of Africa.
Lana brought in a beautiful cloth from Tanzania. It helped to inspire our artwork.
Mrs Barr from Charlene’s Project visited our harvest celebration and told us about life in Uganda.
We had an African afternoon in our classroom. We looked at maps and talked about the flight paths from Belfast and Dublin to different African countries. We then took a virtual flight to Africa, and when we ‘landed’ there we got to experience authentic African clothes, jewellery, money, crafts and musical instruments. Some children achieved full marks in their Progress Test and as a special treat they received a handmade African bookmark! Browse our photos to see what a fantastic afternoon we had.
We completed some space art work - we think that our displays look out of this world!
We have had lots of fun preparing for Christmas in Year 6M. Have a look at our photos.
