Autumn Term 1 - Bright Lights, Big City!

Would you rather go to London or Rio de Janeiro? Why?



In the Bright Lights, Big City project, the children will take part in a royal garden party and learn about Queen Elizabeth II. They will learn about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, including their location, capital cities and some of their physical and human features. They will have the opportunity to do map work, using compasses and positional and directional language to plan routes around London. They will research the cause and impact of the Great Fire of London and look at some famous London landmarks. They will learn about other capital cities around the world, including Kuala Lumpur, and compare how they are similar and different to London.


The children will also take part on the companion project of ‘Taxi’, which is a design and technology project and will teach the children about wheels, axles and chassis and how they work together to make a vehicle move.

This afternoon, the children met Marley the Meerkat as part of their innovate week and were asked to help them decide what to pack when they visited London taking into account the different seasons of the year. They had to sort clothes into different times of the year and then make a note of these to help Marley decide what to pack for their visit.

A very productive and engaging lesson in Year 2R this morning, as the children started to gather together their learning and information from the previous two days to create their informative poster all about Queen Elizabeth II. Today's task was to create the heading, label the picture and then create a list of some of the Queen's favourite things. All the while thinking about their capital letters, full stops and spacing between words.

A great start to their project in Year 2R. The children watched a video all about Queen Elizabeth II and read some information to work in groups to create notes of the facts they had found. These will be useful when they create their own informative posters later in the week.
