World Around Us - January - March 2018

Our topic in January and February will be ‘Jungle Jamboree’

The children will be using the artwork of Henri Rousseau as stimulus for their exploration of jungle plants and animals. We will use fiction and non-fiction books to find out about jungles and we will enjoy a visit from ‘Zoo-lab’ when we will be able to handle a variety of wild animals! The pupils will complete a technology task creating a little mini ‘Elmer’ to take home with them.

We will also explore wet and dry materials and carry out some investigations into waterproof materials that we could use in the jungle.

The children will use a variety of musical instruments to recreate the sound of the jungle. They will make a jungle rattle drum. They will compare animal ears with human ears.


Explore: Participate in individual and shared ICT experiences using websites such as and Active Inspire and C2K programmes.

Express: Participate in creating a picture on Active Primary.   Discuss what is happening in the picture and record using the sound control and recorder buttons. Listen to recordings.

Exchange: Discuss how we communicate with people across the world through the use of phone (calls and messages)

Evaluate: Talk about their work. E.g. talk to the teacher about the picture they created on Active Inspire or their exploration in The Crystal Rainforest.
