In term 1, we have been looking at the wider world. We started by looking in our atlases for the 7 continents and 5 oceans that are on planet Earth. During this time, we observed the migration of the hummingbird from Central America to North America and realising how long a journey such a small bird has to do! After this, we started to locate and name countries in the United Kingdom before going into more detail by looking at counties and cities. The year 3's then started to locate and name some of the countries in Europe. At the end of our lessons, we complete some activities on our double-page spreads which are related to what we have been doing in the lesson.
Additionally, over 2 weeks in term 1 we started to look at using a compass. At first, we used simple compass directions such as finding North, South, East, West, before progressing on by using the 4 compass points to follow and give directions to our partner.
