Time Traveller Week

We have been learning about events in the past as part of this special week. The Professor visited us to explain that his time machine was broken and events had gone out of order. Our special mission was to reorder historical events and we accepted this mission...

Christopher Columbus

We travelled back in time to 1492, to find out about Christopher Columbus and why he was a famous explorer. Our journey also helped us to remember the points of the compass - N S E W.

We learnt how to draw Christopher Columbus. Do you know the names of his three ships?

The Gold Rush

Our time machine travelled to 1848 where we went searching for gold in California. Unfortunately we haven't found any yet though!

We enjoyed developing our painting skills to create some lovely pictures.
