For Design and Technology week we have been learning about London! We learnt its our capital city , its where the queen lives and where the government comes together to make big decisions about where we live . We talked about Some of the landmarks in London and shared our experiences of visits to London. We compared London and where we live in Peterborough. There are many similarities with Peterborough having the Cathedral that the children have visited and the River Nene Like the River Thames and Westminster Abbey in London.
We looked carefully at the buildings in London and discussed the 2D and 3D shapes we could see. We learnt lots of new language like dome, spires, Palace.
On Thursday our parents came to join us. We shared what we have learnt . We then joined together in teams with other children and parents to make some of the London landmarks . We used , Lego , bricks, Polydron, 2D and 3 D shapes. Some of us designed and made our own models and pictures using recycling materials
