LIV Village Focus Week
Supporting LIV village in Durban, South Africa, is a long-standing partnership at Hillside. Now part of our Geography curriculum, the week-long whole-school LIV Village week enables children to learn about all aspects of the area, the village, its purpose and the changing landscape of Durban. Brilliant work produced by the children included amazing animals drawn by Y2, research in Y6, study of maps, drama, and even gardening like the children in the village! Children also learned some African language, saying greetings and counting in zulu. We were able to have some live links to the village this year, as Mrs Rayner travelled to Durban specially for our LIV Village week, and joined us via video link as well as gathering all sorts of resources, photos and information to enrich our studies.
