“The Indonesia Atlas” written and illustrated by Year 5

The Indonesia Atlas Final_Page_01
“The Indonesia Atlas” written and illustrated by Year 5 Year 5 initiated a project to create an 'Indonesia Atlas' book, which would inform the reader about Indonesia, it's people, geography, culture and history, alongside some fantastic illustrations.

NAS teachers use key texts in their teaching and make links between different areas of the curriculum to ensure learning is meaningful for their children. An excellent example of this is the recent project completed in Year 5 as part of their IPC unit “The Holiday Show”.  

The children were learning how to write informative texts inspired by “The Picture Atlas – an incredible journey” by Simon Holland. When the class realised that Indonesia is not included in this book, they decided to create their own atlas highlighting the geographical and cultural features of the different pieces that make up the nation of Indonesia. 

Every child in the class was assigned two sections of the book to research by Mr Gerald. Over a period of three weeks, they produced the artwork and text for their atlas which was then published as a beautiful hardback coffee table book. Congratulations Year 5!
