| Year 2

The new geography topic is South Africa and the children began by watching a clip showing what South Africa has to offer. The children were then asked to think of things that they would like to find out more about.

The questions that the children generated will be used to plan the next few weeks of learning.

Here are a sample of the questions:

Why do penguins live there? What different types of animals are there? What are the different languages spoken? How hot and cold does it get? What is the name of the tallest mountain? Are there any deserts in South Africa? What do the people eat? How many people live there?

We are all looking forward to becoming South African ‘experts’.
