Our current big question is...
What's so special about the USA?
Today, we have been linking our Geography topic to our Design and Technology skills to create our own models of landmarks that can be found throughout the USA. We started by designing our landmarks and considering what materials and equipment we will need, and then we built the structure of the model and decorated them. Have a look at our creations:
Today, Year 5 researched the climate and weather patterns across the USA. Each group of children were given a different city to research, and produced a weather chart to show what the weather was like there this week. Then, we performed our weather reports for each other. After listening to each other's reports, we had to guess which city each group were reporting from.
