Sensational Safari  
 
 
Through our geography unit ‘Sensational Safari’ we will learn about the key geographical features of Africa with a focus on Kenya, learning about the wildlife, landscapes and culture. Children will compare Africa to the UK and be encouraged to recognise and respect the similarities and differences.
