Famous Explorers

As part of our History Fortnight the children in Year 2 are leaning about famous explorers. Today they learnt the names of some very important explorers. These included Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh and Captain Cook. They even learnt about modern day explorers including Dame Ellen MacArthur. The children created their own timeline and sequenced these explorers chronologically. 


It was lovely to see all of the children back after the summer break. Despite the rain, we had a lovely morning at Sandilands listening to a presentation from the RNLI and beachcombing. The children found so many exciting things which they brought back to the classroom to explore further. During the afternoon the children used pastels to create their own beach hut pictures inspired by our trip.
