This Term our Topic is 'Hakuna Matata'. We are excited to be learning about Africa as a diverse continent; studying specific countries within Africa focusing on culture, traditions, economy, Art and History. We will use the film 'The Lion King' for some of our learning; focusing on well being. Did you know how many lessons there are to be learnt throughout the film? There is so much to learn, we may need more than a term! Please check this page as well as twitter to keep up to date with our learning in year 6. Thank you-Mrs Vigliotta, Miss Thomas and Miss Moon
