Year 1 Class Trip to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre
Year 1 had a great day visiting the Bucks Railway Centre in Quainton.
Explorers Theme Week
In Year One we have been rounding off our topic on Cold Places by learning about Captain Scott and his final trip to the Antarctic. The children helped to make a large model of Scott’s ship, we thought about the shapes of the sails that they could see and did some wonderful sketches of the ship. They thought about what Scott may have needed to take for his expedition and how the team carried their luggage and equipment. We looked at different ways of travelling on the snow and ice, then used our construction toys, lego, knex, mobile, clixi shapes to make snow vehicles. We took advantage of the windy day and went out, imagining that we had reached the South Pole and feeling the wind made us think about what it might have been like for Captain Scott and his men, out in the Antarctic for 4 months. The children have produced posters to tell us about Scott’s journey and invented their own Antarctic base camps, using blankets and other props. We have all enjoyed this week.
