What a lovely assembly the children produced all by themselves this term by creating scripts in English lessons. I was a very proud teacher as they shared their team work to create dramas linked to our science plants topic (seed dispersal methods) and history topic (Stone Age - bow and arrow advert). They shared reflective and thoughtful pieces written about our topic in RE, 'Journeys'. Finally, the Rock and Roll dance routine that they had been creating in groups was performed with hip wiggling and gusto - well done all of you.
AROUND THE WORLD DAY: ENGLAND
We have participated in many tasks and activities to learn about England.
Treasure Trail Map work: recognising the invisible longitude and latitude lines that help navigation around the globe. Children recapped their knowledge from Year 2 on naming continents and seas/oceans.
Outdoor Essex County Activity: the outside boundary of Essex was created with chalk and ropes. The children then had a map of Essex and had to identify where certain cones were in relation to Witham and which towns or villages they represented.
Front cover work: the children coloured a map of the UK and identified the areas which are part of it.
Laptop and atlas work: the children identified rivers in the UK and labelled these using an atlas and map to work out which was which - and which part of the UK they were in.
Definitions Game: children used their recent knowledge of new vocabulary introduced about rivers and matched definitions to words - a dictionary was used if they were unsure. We shall play a game with this later in the term.
