We are using a new book as the focus for our next unit of English. The story is Lila and the Secret of the Rain which is set in Kenya. The story will also link in with our Cultural Week work in a few weeks time.
We began by finding out a little bit about Kenya by looking at different pictures of the country. The children have begun to understand that Kenya is a diverse country with villages, towns and cities and wide ranging landscapes. Using some pictures the children worked together to find common nouns and then began to use their understanding of adjectives to describe these nouns.
