Curriculum Information

Autumn A

Our class topic for Autumn A is called 'Exploring Africa.' The linked subjects for this topic are geography, history, art, music and English.  


In Geography, we will be exploring Africa through the eyes of the people, focusing heavily on human geography including the types of settlement, land use, economic activity, including trade links and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water. 



In history, we will be exploring the Atlantic slave trade looking at the Atlantic passage, the treatment and resistance of enslaved Africans and the abolition of slavery. We will also be looking at some very influential people within black history, who with their powerful voices, made an impact on the world. 



In art lessons, we will be recreating African patterns using chosen mediums and the will be recreating these patterns by printing on Lino. We will also be recreating a painting in the style of Tingatinga and will learn about the work of Esther Mahlangu and Ndebele designs. 

Watch out for our masterpieces being uploaded to Showbie soon!



In music lessons, we will be participating in  a sample of African drumming whilst listening to African styles of music in  general lessons. This will be additional to our weekly music lesson.  



Our class read this term will be 'Journey to Jo'burg' which is a modern classic about the journey of a brother and sister across Africa during the time of South Africa's apartheid. In writing lessons, the children will be recreating their own African journey story whilst also writing an information text about the slave trade and a recount in the form of a diary from a day in the life of an African slave.
