We are well underway with our new topic ‘Remember, Remember.’
We started the topic by writing ‘I wonder…’ questions about the Victorians. From this we discovered that lots of children were eager to learn more about Queen Victoria.
Yesterday, the children had a mystery envelope to open in their groups. After the children had decided what the task was, they then had to use the ipads and books to work out whether the statements about Queen Victoria were true or false. Other than research skills being put to the test, the children had to work cooperatively, take turns, share equipment, write details down to back up the statement and feedback to the rest of their group.
Take a look at the photographs to see them in action…
