Multicultural Week - England

Recommended Posts

how about looking at different areas of england per day so perhaps building towers for london, making yorkshire puddings, water play for Bath, making Manchester tarts!! ....or perhaps do a mind map of what the children know about England and working from there, so going from their own knowledge first...you could create a learning wall from the ideas and extend this over the week

We haven't done 'England' but have done London. It was very successful... but we are only about an hour away so quite a few of our children have visited London. I'm sure you could adapt the idea to 'England'.

 

We had photos of buildings/monuments placed around our garden and went on a pretend bus journey to visit each 'tourist' attraction. Took cameras to take photos infront of the building/monument, and learn't a fact about it. We chose carefully..and linked the photo's to shapes in the garden..e.g we had a picture of Tower Bridge on the climbing frame, Buckingham Palace on the playhouse and the London Eye on a circular windmill...It was a really effective way of linking shapes to our knowledge of our environment.

 

The children made tickets, we had a role play ticket office... they took 'picnic's' to eat in the 'park', played football at 'Wembley', Painted in the National Gallery, sang in the O2 and had a story about Ballet in The Royal Opera House....

 

We also had lots of very positive feedback from parents... some who then took their children to visit London.

 

Think we might cover it again... either Jubilee time or before the Olympics
