k2350338Today we have continued to look at the Maasai way of life. We have been looking at where Maasai people live. We know they make mud huts. We then worked together to try and create our own mud huts (we painted and used mud to create our huts). CLICK HERE to watch a video of an African family making a mud hut.

Greedy Zebra

July 6th, 2016 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Greedy Zebra by Mwenye Hadithi and Adrienne Kennaway.


This is an african folk tale story about creation about how the zebra got his stripes. Basically when God made the world all the animals were born plain. God put all the colours, textures and patterns in a cave and the animals took turns to choose their own colours and patterns. Zebra put his stomach first and carried on eating living up to his reputation as greedy.When zebra got there only black was left so zebra put it on suddenly with his excess weight the black ripped living him with the striped black rips with white showing through. The wonderful pictures are by an African artist with a native feel.

We have then had a go at drawing animals that live in Africa using the program FRESCO on the laptops. Come back later to have a look.

Today we looked at Maasai Tribe traditional jewellery from Africa. Maasai people live in Kenya which is where the story we read yesterday is based. We enjoyed looking at lots of pictures of the bright coloured jewellery. We looked at all the patterns that you can see in the jewellery. We then had a go at creating our own using paper plates and coloured paint.

Today we have been using fruits to print with. This has allowed us to really look at the shapes in the fruits. It was a messy job with the sticky fruits and the paint!
