In the Autumn term, children will expand on their prior learning of Europe, North America, the Equator, the Arctic, and Antarctic to gain a solid grasp of biomes and their significance in both physical and human geography. Additionally, they'll delve into climate change and its profound impact on our planet and its inhabitants.
Volcanoes and Earthquakes
During Spring term, we will dive deep into the Earth's geology, going "beyond the surface." Children will investigate earthquake and volcano-prone regions to develop a profound understanding of the underlying forces driving these phenomena. Additionally, students will revisit mountain formation and explore how Earth's tectonic plates colliding lead to both volcanoes and earthquakes.
Over the Summer term, Children will draw on their solid foundation of both human and physical geography to explore the vibrant continent of South America. We will compare South America to North America and other continents, like Europe, enriching their global perspective. We will consider its position in terms of longitude, latitude, the Equator, and the Tropic of Capricorn. We will also look at migration and its broader implications in the realm of human geography.
