This week, The Gingerbread Man has sent us more postcards to let us know where he has been travelling. Over the weekend, he got on the train to London Paddington. We have loved finding out about his adventures in the city of London. We made comparisons between the stations in Cornwall to those in London. We found out that London has big tall skyscrapers and an old building called 'The Houses of Parliament'. We noticed that Big Ben looked a lot liked the old church in Callington.
The Gingerbread Man told us he is going to travel on the Eurostar train to other countries in Europe. We will be busy exploring the culture, cuisine, music and landmarks he tells us about throughout Europe this week, including that of the artist Picasso.
In Maths, we are learning to use positional language. We have been giving directions to Bee Bots; helping them to get to important European landmarks.
