Year 4 - Sengis
Welcome to Sengi Class! This year, our school's theme is pollinating animals. Our class name is sengi, which means elephant shrew in African Bantu languages. Sengis are native to Africa, and live in a range of countries, from South Africa, Tanzania and The Democratic Republic of Congo to Uganda and Botswana. We have really enjoyed learning about the geography of Africa using maps, atlases and globes. We have also learnt about how sengis pollinate plants, and we have revised our learning from year 3 on pollination. Additionally, we learnt about the habitats of sengis and we also really enjoyed making 3D clay sengis and creating a stamp with an oil pastel drawing of a sengi. Remember to check our class Twitter and our class Sway to keep up to date with our learning and don't forget to ask us for some fantastic facts on sengis.
