This half term, our topic will focus on Geography. Our topic is called ‘The streets around our school’. We will be focusing on the environment we live in, any local issues and finding solutions to issues in our locality.
We are becoming geographers – a type of scientist who studies the Earth. Geographers study the land (the physical features of the Earth) and the people who live within it (the human features).
We looked on Google earth to see where we lived in comparison to the whole Earth. We know that we live in the continent Europe. The country England and the city Leeds. We looked at Moortown Primary School and Moortown park on Google Earth. We even spotted where our classroom was!
Try going on Google Earth at home. Can you find your house and places you like to visit?
We also looked at the different countries that make up the UK and their capital cities. Help at home by looking at a map of the UK with your child and talking about the different countries and cities.
