Explorers in Year 1

Class: Year 1 Year: 2023 - 2024

We have enjoyed learning about a very famous explorer called Christopher Columbus. We discovered that he was an explorer amd compared what life was like in the 1400's to life now.

The children enjoyed pretending they were Christopher Columbus and telling us what they were thinking as people around them told him it wasn't a good idea to go exploring. We imagined being on one of the three ships setting off on their exploration and learnt about what life would have been like on the ship, what they ate, where they slept, how they kept themselves safe, how they communicated with each other and their family and friends and the work that they needed to. 

Thank you to the Kings students for playing the Columbus board game with us this afternoon to help us remember our learning from the morning.
