Movers and Shakers

This project teaches children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They will learn to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.

My Local Area

In this unit, children will use atlases and globes to discover about the world, including the seven continents and five oceans, the countries, capital cities and surrounding seas of the UK and the equator and poles. Children will develop fieldwork and map skills creating maps of the school and their local area. Children will learn the geographical human and physical features of Tulum in Mexico and compare them to the geographical features of their own local area.

Let’s Explore the World

This essential skills and knowledge project teaches children about atlases, maps and cardinal compass points. They learn about the characteristics of the four countries of the United Kingdom and find out why there are hot, temperate and cold places around the world. They also compare England to Somalia. Children carry out fieldwork, collecting primary data in their locality to answer geographical questions.
