Exploring Landmarks of the North East!

Exploring Landmarks of the North East!

Reception were very excited to find out that we are part of a new Erasmus project! The children enjoyed using google maps on the interactive whiteboard to find the UK! Miss Wilson also showed us where we could find our partner schools that we are working with for this Erasmus project in Spain, Romania and Italy.

This week, we have been looking at the story of ‘Leaf Man’. We have thought about what Leaf Man would see if was flying above Newcastle and Gateshead. We have used street view on google maps to walk around the city. Miss Wilson stopped at some local landmarks and we tried to name them! We soon discovered that we had visited some of the landmarks with our families! In groups we have worked on our observational drawing skills. We have each created a line drawing of a famous local landmark concentrating on the shapes that we could see in the images.

We added our own Leaf Man flying above our Newcastle and Gateshead landmarks. Can you recognise our local landmarks?
