Year 4 Humanities

This week in Humanities, Year 4 have been assuming the roles of medieval explorers. Having studied the travels of Marco Polo and Zheng He, the boys have been collecting as much information as they can about how travellers in the 12th and 13th centuries saw the world.

The boys were then tasked with creating their own world maps which included all of the countries that would have been known to medieval European and Chinese explorers. The boys considered carefully why some of the continents, such as North and South America, might not have featured on these maps. Fantastic work, boys.
