Today we started our Settlements part if Geography.
We started by finding the definition of a settlement and talking about different settlements.
We then went on to make a diamond 9 of what we thought we needed to look for to have a successful settlement.
Once we had decided on this we went to the island at the back of school to decide where we thought would be the best place to settle. The island had beaches, sea, mountains, forests and a river running from the mountains to the sea.
It was really interesting to see where everyone chose to create their settlements and their reasons why.
I wonder if our locations will change after we have learnt more about settlements this term?
Look at the pictures of our afternoon below.
Today in Art we created silhouette pictures of the Iron Man. Don't they look brilliant!
Today in Literacy we were answering inference and prediction questions using just the front cover of The Iron Man book.
The Iron Man is a brilliant book written by Ted Hughes. During our topic we will be reading the book and watching the DVD The Iron Giant. We will be doing lots of work surrounding the book and DVD. An outline of this can be seen at the top of this page.
