In the Spring term Year 1 spent a term learning about significant explorers travelling to places no one has been before. They focussed on Neil Armstrong and Scott of the Antarctic.
Firstly, they learnt about what makes a person significant and what an explorer is. Then, they learnt about the key events in Neil Armstrong and Scott of the Antarctic's life. After that, they sequenced events from Scott and Neil Armstrong's life. Finally, they used historical sources to ask and answer questions about these key significant people.
Have a look at some of Year 1's amazing work!
