Reception have been learning about 'The Jungle'. We used the Globe to locate England and Madagascar. The children could explain that we live in a town called Hartlepool which is in a country called England. We talked about ways we could travel to Madagascar and then made vehicles using construction.
"You could go in an aeroplane because they can fly over the oceans."- Finn
"It's too far away to walk or go on a bike or a scooter or a Segway."- Toby
Year 3 worked as a team to make group volcanoes.
They picked the best parts from each other's designs and put them together to make a group sculpture.
They all worked well together and solved problems as a team.
Look at these amazing finished volcanoes
In Reception, the children have been looking at maps to see where Madagascar is. We decided we could not walk there so the children have made some vehicles to travel there.
Yellow group made an aeroplane, Green group made a boat and Red group made a helicopter.
We have been learning about Volcanoes in year 3 this term!
