What is an explorer?


In our topic lessons this term we have an exciting question to investigate. We will be looking at what an explorer is and what they do.

We will be investigating the famous explorer Christopher Columbus. We will study different types of boats and the type of boat Christopher Columbus would have used. We are going to look at a map of the world and see how maps today differ from maps that would have been used in Columbus's day. We are going to also create our own map and age it!


We are then going to look at how we use a compass like Christopher Columbus would have done and then we are going to make our own!

To finish off our topic work this term, we are going to look at the artist LS Lowry and we are going to recreate a 'Seascape' painting in the style of Lowry.


What an exciting term we have!
