Year 1 have been travelling back in time with Explorer Bear. We have found out about the expeditions of Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus and have compared them. We had to decide which pieces of equipment each explorer would have needed and make decisions about which time period had the different artefacts. Would Christopher Columbus have had a camera? Would Neil Armstrong have take a wooden barrel of supplies in his rocket?
We also had fun imagining going on our own expeditions and deciding what to pack in our kit bags. What would you take to the desert or to the bottom of the ocean? Luckily we made it back in time for home time!
On Thursday afternoons, we are also exploring the Forest area and this week we explored Autumn leaves and looked for other signs of the season outdoors. It was great fun!
