Before learning lots about meerkats, we have focused on ourselves. We have carefully created self-portraits using paint and brushes of different thicknesses. We also used an ICT program on 2Simple to draw ourselves.
Then we focused on our bodies. In topic teams, we drew around one person then labelled as many parts as we could name. It was surprising how many parts we knew!
In our writing sessions we wrote questions about ourselves and gave three answers – one correct and two incorrect. It was fun asking our friends to guess the right answers.
