We’ve had another busy week in Y6 this week. In English, we have continued our work on the Little Match Girl where we created some beautiful story paths as well as using the story to help us with lots of different grammar features. Can you write a detailed list that has colons and semi colons in it?
In topic, we started to look at parts of the world that were a part of the British Empire. Although a lot of the topic this term is history based, we found that we needed to recap on our geography learning! What can you remember about latitude, longitude and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn?
To begin with, we were finding it tricky to locate many places on a blank world map but we’ve worked really hard and we’re quite confident now with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Aden, India, South Africa, British East Africa, British New Guinea and British Guiana. There’s a lot more work to come around this though – not all of these places have the same names as they did in the Victorian era!
