In geography this week, Elder class looked at the port of Southampton and the trading links it has with China particularly through the visiting of the Marco Polo container ship every eleven weeks. They looked at aerial photographs of the port and an OS map of the area and tried to find given places on both. Elders also used four and six-digit grid references, which built on their maths work. There was some fantastic co-operation evident.
There was lots of creativity in dance this week too. The class had to choreograph their own routine given certain criteria to meet. Their dances are entitled ‘Waiting…’ and they used a chair as a prop. They will build on this week’s work in next week’s lesson to finalise their routines. There were some impressive moves from Joel and Peony, which were greatly admired by the rest of the class. Great cooperation evident in all groups too!
Elder class made their Christingles and then attended the service at the church led by Rev Lawson. Oliver was part of the giant orange and Merryana represented Elder class with her lit candle.
