The Year 4 children started the new term with a day of immersing themselves into their new topic. The children spent the day using their imagination to become ‘Explorers’ for the day. The Entry Point immediately engaged the children and allowed them to develop connections with future learning.
Before the day began, the children mind mapped their current understanding of everything they knew related to the topic. In addition, the classes discussed what they wanted to learn this term and asked meaningful questions.
Our goal was for the children to gain an understanding of what life was like for an explorer during their adventures. The children dressed up as explorers and bought with them any accessories explorers may need during a great voyage.
