Having brainstormed the reasons for people and animals to migrate and thought about how we can display the information, we began to make our big world map. It has been a lot of fun and extremely educational. In pairs, the children have been drawing the different continents, which we have now put together. The map is looking really good and we have now moved on to getting our key information together. The children decided that they want to present the information as a book and so we are now working on another project for our inquiry.
Next week we will start charting animal migrations and that will then lead us into our investigation of human migrations.
In math we started on a new topic: multiplication. The children were very excited to start on a new skill and they are handling the new material very well. If parents could help children count in groups of 2, 4, 5, 9 and 10 that would be a great help.
Many thanks to the children for all of the effort that they have put in.
