Amazon Class started this week by taking part in London Day!
It was our mission to bring London to Stanton and enjoy lots of super, hands-on learning about our 'We're off to London' topic.
We came to school wearing the colours of the Union Jack flag- red, white and blue, or a London themed costume. We started the day with a London song before learning about different London landmarks. Outside, we took part in a London landmark hunt, reading and following clues, followed by ‘stepping into’ a large London map and using a compass to give directions to reach different landmarks. After exploring the book ‘Pop-Up London’, we made our own 3D maps to show the location of landmarks in our capital city.
During the afternoon, we shared the story of ‘The Naughty London Bus’ and enjoyed retelling the story in our small world play. Some children even innovated the story and told the story of the naughty black cab! The buses and cabs particularly enjoyed the baked beans!
It wouldn’t have been London Day without some Paddington themed activities so we finished off our day by modelling our very own Paddington Bears and a whole class Union Jack.
