As 'Geographers' the children will continue to look at the air quality in Shanghai. They will work in groups to create a barometer. The children will observe the weather over a period of time and then collate the results and discuss them.
As 'Artists' the children will use powder paints to create their own pictures of the Shanghai skyline. The children will look at past and present images of Shanghai to capture different aspects of the skyline and how it has changed.
