Topic activities

Welcome to our topic page.


This terms topic is Jambo! This means hello in Swahili, a language that is spoken in Kenya, in Africa. This term, we will be learning all about the country of Kenya, where it is and how life there is different from life in the UK. We will also be learning about some of the animals that live there!


Here you will find a 'pick and mix' of learning opportunities for you to select during the week. Feel free to do as many as you like! Or you could create your own activities linked to our topic of 'Jambo!'. When you complete any activity please share them with us via Tapestry, or by email:

We're going on safari! Please watch the slide show first and discuss. We have added some worksheets relating to the presentation you also might like to have a go at.
