Focus on Year 2

The Otters have been thinking about Christmas and what it might be like in different places around the world.  The first port of call, however, wasto look at the world and find out a bit more about it, how much is land and how much is sea or ocean?  It was quite tricky to move from a 2D map with the same sea on both sides, to a 3D globe and work out what was what. Then there was the Equator, Northern and Southern Hemispheres.  What great words! Everyone loves finding out new, technical, and interesting words.  Further investigations will follow about how people celebrate Christmas, the different temperatures, terrain, and traditions. It has been handy to have looked at directions in Maths last week, so compasses at the ready!
