Summer Two - Benin

When did the Kingdom of Benin begin and what can we learn from them?

During this half term we will discover more about the kingom of Benin. We will find out where the kingdom of Benin was, how the people of Benin lived and the languages spoken. Next, we will look into settlement patterns and demographic trends. Then, we will find out about the resources they had and how they used them for trade. After that, we will learn how to create overlay maps that show the development of empires and kingdoms in West Africa. Finally, we will research into the rise and establishment of the Benin Kingdom; consider what brought the Edo people to the rainforests of Benin and how the empire grew.

In English, we will be focusing on our text The Hunter. 

In Maths, we will be developing our knowledge properties of shape, position and direction, statistics and problem solving.
