Science and foundation subjects

Continuing our topic on journeys we thought you might like to imagine you were going on a safari to Kenya. A safari is a trip to see the wild animals in their own surroundings, called nature reserves. The most famous in Kenya is called the Masai Mara National Reserve. Take a look below:

What would you need to pack in your suitcase for your trip? 

Here are some things to think about: 

  • What is the weather like in Kenya? 
  • How would you protect yourself from the sun and heat? 
  • What type of clothes would you wear? 
  • How would you get a better view of the animals? 
  • How would you record your trip? 


You can make a list or use this template worksheet to draw your items. 

If you would like, you can design your own national park and put in the animals you would like to see. Here is a helpful worksheet or you can draw it out on a big piece of paper.

We also thought it would be interesting for you to learn about the people who live on the Masai Mara. You can find out about how they live and their customs. Here is a powerpoint to watch and there is a follow up activity to record what information you have found.


*Parent/ carer help – Please note the different spelling. Maasai (spelt with double ‘a’) refers to the people who live on the Masai Mara (place). 


Would you like to make some Maasai style jewellery? 

Here are some great ideas. Have fun!


To practise your keyboard skills why not learn how to send an email to a friend or relation? Swap emails and then send a message to them on a computer, laptop, tablet or phone.
