Welcome to Class One and Class Two!
Our Curriculum Project for Autumn 2019
Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we are going to become street detectives! We will explore our local area and the key landmarks of our city. Then, hop on board a big, red bus and head for England's capital. Yes, that's right, we're on our way to London! This half term, we will have tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we will locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what life is like to live in London, comparing with our own. We will produce tourist leaflets and make souvenirs for tourists.
