How do our empires/events look on a map?
Then we learnt some new geographical knowledge by taking part in a Quiz Quiz Trade. Would you know what the symbols above show on a map?
After this, we looked at the Khmer Empire. In our teams we plotted, on a map, how the empire spread and the other countries that influenced the empire. Following this, we then moved this learning on to our own civilisation or event. We tried to show chronology in our maps through the use of a coloured key. We had to consider time though - the World Wars could be a new colour for each year BUT that would be impossible! So, instead, we used a new colour for a decade.
Great learning from everyone in Milepost 3! It is great to see them all really embracing their enquirers personal goal and learning through the topic that they are most interested in! Go MP3!
Year 5 have been working hard to plan and prepare a longer literacy Myth or Legend this week. They have been recalling of their VCOP skills and thinking about all of the vital elements of their myth or legend - Where is it set? Who are the characters? How will it end?
Year 5 have been having a week full of multiplication! They have been consolidating their skills in solving word problems and tackling those tricky long multiplications. They have also been working on their recall and accuracy! Amazing! They all enjoyed trying to trick their team mates my making deliberate mistakes and seeing if their friends could find them! Well done!
