We learn all about EXPLORERS!
We begin our journey by learning about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing. We bring our learning to life during a visit from the open Box Theatre Company who take us back in time to 1969 to train as astronauts and go aboard Apollo 11 ourselves. It is great fun and we learn a lot about this historic global event.
We also learn about Captain Robert Scott’s exhibition to Antarctica and chose our own explorer to research at home to show off our independent researcher skills. We put our explorer skills to the test through some role play activities that include making our own dens.
We end our Explorer Day where we invited our parents to join us for some fun activities. We also get the chance to share our home learning projects about our chosen explorer with others across Year 1. We are very proud of how hard the children work on their home projects and how creative they are.
After half term our topic is...
We learn all about how transport has changed over the years and use a timeline to help us see these changes. We learn more about this during our trip to Beaulieu Motor Museum.
We also focus on our local are of Hiltingbury and Chandlers Ford and think about the human and physical geography features we have. We look at maps and aerial photos to plot these features. We also go on a walk around our local area to see them for ourselves.
