Our Place On Earth
What makes our place on earth special?
Next term our topic is Our Place on Earth. In this topic we will be using our geographical knowledge to explore our local area. Walking around our local area, we will be carrying out field work, learning mapping skills and exploring the changes in our locality. Next week we will be exploring the features of a river and locating where rivers are on a map UK.
This week we will begin our walks around the local community. We will be learning about maps and their features. As a class we will plan our route before we leave school, seeing if we can follow this on our walk.
This week as readers we are going to making predictions about how we think the story will end. As writers we will then write our own ending of the story, using all the descriptive skills we have been exploring. Once we have written our endings, we will write to Charlie Mackesy and send him our endings to read.
