  1. The children will be learning to tell the difference between human and physical geographical features. Use this link to find out more.  They will then be sorting the human and physical feature cards attached below.
  2. The children will be drawing pictures/taking photographs of features in our school local area (or your local area) and writing sentences about them. They need to remember capital letters and full stops. Their sentences should also include an expanded noun phrase e.g. Our beautiful, small church is a lovely place for quiet reflection.
  3. The children will be making maps of our school village – if it is easier you could make a map of your local area. Please use lesson 8 and 9 from oak academy to support this. The worksheet on maps that we will be using in class is attached below.

We will also be making junk model maps of our area in active learning; this is something you might be able to do at home.

Please get in touch if you need any further support.
