We worked together in groups this morning to create our own island. We added different resources from around the playground and used them to represent different features on the island, like rocks represented the mountains and pinecones represented the trees in a forest. After creating our islands, we created our own map and we added our own key.
Have a look at the maps we made outside in the pictures below:
As part of our RE topic 'The Bible' we have been learning about the discovery of the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls. We made lots of different predictions of what they might be and why they were so important, then after we found out lots of interesting information about them, we acted out the story with a partner.
The children really enjoyed exploring various feelings that we may all feel at some time or other in different senarios.
We then had lots of fun playing feelings charaides and using different facial expressions to express our feelings.
