Drop Pins

 This week we have started our new learning theme, "Drop Pins". Through this theme we will be learning about landmarks and landforms.

Our BIG question for this theme is:

HOW CAN WE PROTECT OUR PLANET AND PEOPLE?

Our key questions for this theme are:

  •  What are the features of different places and how are these being protected for the future?
  • How have natural disasters shaped the Earth?
  • How do natural disasters affect people's lives? 

To start off our theme we began to investiate different landmarks, starting with some that we see regularly around our school. We had a year group quiz to see if we could recognise them all.

After that, we watched a clip of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Can you remember which of these still remains today?

Next, each class investigated a different famous landmark.

 Our "wonder" was Christ the Redeemer, a 38m tall statue that stands on Corcovado Mountain overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We have started to create models using paper, polystyrene and masking tape.

Keep checking here for pictures of our completed "wonders"!
