Now it is Term 2 and we have started a new topic! We are going to be finding out about some of the changes that might happen on a farm. To help us get started we made a define map about the farm. Miss Brookshaw gave us all some pictures and we had to decide whether they were relevant to a farm or not relevant, and say why! We stuck the pictures that we thought had something to do with a farm in the middle of the map and the other pictures around the outside of the map. We might well change our minds though as we go through the term, so some of these pictures may change places! Click on the picture to see it more clearly!
After our visits from the police and ambulance officers we made a compare map with Mrs Jones. This shows some of the things that are similar and different about their jobs and responsibilities. You can see our ideas more clearly when you click on the photo!
This is a define map that we made about the responsibilities we have at home. We sat in a circle and thought about all the jobs we do at home to help out our families. We had lots of good ideas. Miss Brookshaw wrote down all our ideas and we illustrated them. After this we talked about them some more. We decided that although most of them were jobs, a couple of them were not! We sorted our illustrated cards and stuck all the jobs in the middle of our define map in the "relevant" box. Then we stuck the things that were not jobs around the outside of the define map in the "not relevant" box. You can read our ideas by clicking on the photo to see it more clearly.
