Shared learning and teaching
- Establish what the children already know about Africa, dispelling any misconceptions or stereotypes by stressing the diversity of this massive continent.
- Discuss what geographical information the children would like to find out about Africa. Decide on a list of questions to aid their research.
Children would benefit from experience of: reading non-fiction texts, extracting information, taking notes; using reference texts to find derivations/meanings of new words; recognising differences between fact/opinion.
