World Explorer

We are currently very hard at work being World Explorer's learning about the world around us. We started the topic by learning about the UK. We looked at the 4 countries that make up the UK and also went on a tour of the UK discovering famous landmarks. Ask your child if they can name the 4 countries of the UK!!

 

We have also been learning about Australia. We explored The Great Barrier Reef and the Outback. The children really enjoyed learning about the aboriginals and have produced some fantastic artwork.

Our superhero topic is well underway. We have been busy making our own superheroes and creating super powers for our characters. Batman set us a challenge to design a car that was better than his bat mobile. At first it seemed like this would be an impossible task as we all agreed that the bat mobile was a magnificent car but we got to work using our imaginations to create a car that was even better. We had to firstly plan our design, then we decorated our car and added its special features. Once we had made our cars we evaluated them and we all agreed that our cars were just as good as batman's bat mobile!!!
