Learning about the past

18th January 2019

This fine gentlemen above is Christopher Columbus and along with Neil Armstrong he will be the focus of our History work this term. We will be looking at what these great explorers achieved and then comparing their achievements in the light of what we know now. 

In Geography we are looking at weather throughout the world and particularly in the United Kingdom. The children will be looking at maps of the world, looking at the continents and the oceans and also identifying places in  Great Britain. The children just love looking at atlases and maps so if you can encourage them at home it will help them to understand where they live within the world.

We have spent all week working with money, identifying coins, giving change and making different amounts using coins and notes. Please continue to practise the 2x table so the children can recall the answers without hesitation.
