Around the world topic day

For the start of our Spring topic, 'Near and Far', the Year 1 children took part in a around the world topic day. We had a whistle stop tour of each of the seven continents and participated in a themed activity for each. In Antarctica, we explored changing states when freezing and melting to hatch dinosaur eggs, in Australia we experimented with dotted painting to decorate boomerangs, in North America we created tribal masks, in Europe we made pizzas, in South America we learnt some samba moves, in Africa we created collages of animals we might see on safari and in Asia we explored Chinese dragon dancing and created paper lanterns.
