Apple Class - Years 1 & 2

Our current topic is Explorers. We started exploring our local area, looking at maps and how we travel to school. We then extended our explorations and learnt about countries in the UK and continents of the world. The children loved a video clip we found to help us remember the seven continents! We found out about famous explorers Christopher Columbus, Neil Armstrong and Amelia Earhart. The children loved the classroom transformation during National Space Week and we spent all week doing Space-themed art, music and cooking. We linked our topic work to our science lessons and tested the best materials for sleeping bags, boats and space suits. On the lead up to Christmas we are focussing on Tenzing Norgay and Ernest Shackleton.
