Year 1 - gare du nord
Our class name is ‘Gare du Nord’ and is the building you can see here. We thought it looked like a church or a palace but it’s actually a train station! We had lots of questions about this station such as how much are tickets, what are the statues and where is it? Well, the Gare du Nord is in Paris and it is the busiest station in Europe. It has 36 platforms! Eight of the nine statues on the outside of the Gare du Nord represent destinations outside France. The statue in the centre represents Paris.
IPC and STEM
"This term Year 1's IPC topic is The Magic Toymaker and in Science it is Materials.
We have been sent messages by the mysterious, magic toymaker who has gone on holiday and left us in charge of his toy workshop. We have been set numerous challenges including using our imagination to create our own toys. We will be learning to identify and describe different materials and finding out what materials are best for making a toy boat. We will also be finding out about toys and games from the past and how to decide if a toy is new or old."
