Year 1 have now started their work on Africa; my favourite topic of the year. We have begun to learn about the Maasai tribe who live in parts of Kenya and Tanzania. This slide show is a great introduction to looking at appearance and discussing similarities and differences.
Following this we used the lesson plan from the fantastic site Deep Space Sparkle and the children drew some amazing representations of Maasai figures using coloured pencils and watercolours. The pack includes examples and pattern sheets, look at the results -WOW!!!!
