The chidren have been learning about 'Our World' in Topic. We have been focusing on naming the seven continents (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia & Antartica) and the five oceans (Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Southern & Indian) and locating these on a world map. During the next few weeks we are also going to be trying to locate some different countries around the world (France, Italy, Spain, Russia, China, India, Japan, Canada, USA, Brazil & Mexico).
One way we have been practising this in class is by playing a game of 'Beat the Cartographer'. Two children stand either side of a world map, the teacher shouts out either a continent, ocean or country and the first child to point to it on the map stays in with a new partner to try and beat them. They have had great fun with this game and the class was keen for the map we have been using in class to be put on the website for them to practise at home. Please find links below to a Powerpoint version and a Word version. Hope you enjoy it!
Homework is set on a Friday to be returned by the following Tuesday. There will usually be weekly homework in English, Spelling and Maths.
