Spring 1- Volcanoes
This half term the children will be looking at different volcanoes around the world. They began by researching all of the different types of volcanoes and identifying their key features. Following on from this they discovered some interesting facts about each one. The children really enjoyed it! We think this half term is going to be an exciting one!
In geography this week the children have been investigating different European landmarks sites which make their individual countries unique. The children began by identifying different landmarks and suggested where they thought they were situated. Some of the children were then given some landmarks and using an Ipad and an atlas they had to begin researching where it was based. Other children were given no landmarks therefore they had to carry out some extra research as well as identifying the landmark and its country or city, they also had to use their artistic skills to draw it. Following on from this the children chose one of their landmarks and carried out some further research to write a report about its key features and history. Have a look at some of our brilliant research work!
This week in geography the children have been naming some European countries and identifying them on a map. In groups the children were shown how to use the Geo Europe app on the Ipads to locate different European countries, they were able to carry out some research and take a screenshot of their findings. These pictures were then stuck on a large piece of paper where they children were then able to locate different areas and include additional key facts using their research to help them.
This half term our topic is 'Our European Neighbours'. During our first lesson, we identified the seven continents and the oceans of the world by using an atlas. The children were then given the task to research some of the continents using iPads and record some facts about them. The children really enjoyed this activity.
