More on our holidays topic! I do wish that I had taken more pictures of the start of our topic, but hey-ho. I have put my medium-term planing for all subjects here for anyone who is interested (you may see things here that aren't on there - I do tend to deviate somewhat!).
Drawing on the skills we learnt in the weather topic, children found and interpreted climate data, then chose the best time of year to go on their holiday.
As part of our holidays planning, the children have used tables in Word to create holiday itineraries. You could do this on a spreadsheet, but we have done lots on that but hadn't really explored the formatting options for the tables in Word. It was a great way for them to collate their Maths and ICT skills. They researched flight prices, hotels as well as activities, keeping in mind the characters of their group.
Check back later this week for details of how we got on making tourist maps with QR codes to scan and link to the attraction's website!
