In Year 1, we have been looking at different buildings and structures. We looked at the differences between them around the world. We especially looked at the buildings in London, which we will be exploring further on our trip to London next half term. In Year 2, we have been creating maps of the playground and used our own keys to help us identify the different areas. We also looked at physical features and tried to identify them in the playground.
In Year 3, we have been learning about the history of cinema. We have had lots of fun making our own films. We also looked at extreme weather and compared different countries. In Year 4, we looked at global warming and the importance of looking after our planet. We discussed how to be a ‘green’ and compared the United Kingdom with other countries around the world.
In Year 5, we have been learning about our local area. Using maps, we explored East Tilbury and compared the differences between the past until now.
In Year 6, we learnt about the Titanic. We looked at how and where the ship was built, thinking about the different materials they used back then. We also discussed the social differences they had within the Titanic and the different classes.
On the 9th March we are having a Common Wealth Day. We will be looking at what the Common Wealth is and investigating some countries. We will be having a session for the children to have a look at each class’ work and celebrating what we have done.
