After a very successful autumn term learning all about the Vikings, Willow Class will now be travelling to another part of the world. This sping term we are packing our bags and road trip USA awaits us.
We will be starting off by learning about Native Americans, in which the children have already received their own tribal invitiations. Throughout the term, we will be exploring the geographical location of the indigenous people and begin to encounter the Wild West.
The classroom has been used to showcase a tepee, one style of the Native American's houses, a totem pole, cactus and an airplane ticket addressed to land in the United States of America. The children have already used these items in the classroom to help their learning and we are very excited to see if any other mysterious artefacts or objects arrive this term.
In English, we have begun forming a non-chronological report based on our learning about the Native Americans and the way that they lived. In Art, we have studied the purposes and designs of totem poles and the children have used their learning to paint their own totem poles. These have been showcased on the children's theme books to introduce our theme.
During the first term, Willow Class will be learning all about the brave, yet vicious Vikings that raided and invaded around Europe.
We will begin the term by learning place value in maths and exploring Viking mythology.
One of the best ways to learn about how the Vikings lived in the past, is to take part in role play and living like a real Viking would have. So the children can expect to go between living as a Cam Woodfield Junior student and living as a Viking.
