Welcome to Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School


Masai necklace

You will need some paper plates, scissors, brightly coloured paints or felt tip pens.  If you do not have paper plates, ask a grown-up to help you cut a large circle out of a cereal box packet or paper.

Shadow Safari

Many people go on safari to watch and find fascinating animals in their habitat, including at sunset. As the sun sets over the plains, animal shadows are created and a beautiful scene emerges.

Have a go at creating your own safari sunset. You can create your own animal shadows using black paper, print the templates from 'workbook 4' or if you have any animal toys you could go outside and draw around their shadows.

Rumble in the Jungle

Have you read the story 'Rumble in the Jungle?' You can head over to our stories page now to read it.


Many African animals live in the jungle. Can you create your own jungle picture? 

You can create your picture with pencils, paints, collage or even do it on  your computer using the website below.

Tinga Tinga Art

Did you listen to Mrs O'Regan's story about a safari? Many of the animals you can see on safari come from Tanzania. 


In the video below you can learn how to draw an elephant. One of my favourite ways to draw animals is in a style called Tinga Tinga.  Edward Tinga Tinga painted bright and colourful pictures of animals in his country, Tanzania. 


Get some paper and a pencil ready.  You will need to press PAUSE to draw each part of the elephant.  At the end, you can choose your own colours to colour in the elephant.  Have fun!
