Term 4

Our topic this term is entitled 'Shape Of The UK'.

Why do we live here? We live in the county of Kent – the garden of England, home to Charles Dickens and the main area for growing hazelnuts in the UK! The first ever James Bond book was written down the road in St. Margarets and we are the gateway to Europe being just 21 miles away from Calais in France. Where do other people live? Do you know anything about the other counties of the UK or how our country is divided up? As developing geographers, we will consider the shape of the UK as we travel from South further North. Along the way, we will practice our skills in map reading through the use of OS maps, Google Earth and atlases.  You will be so inspired by the wonderful and diverse shape of the UK you will want to discover so many of these extraordinary places in the future.


In maths we have been learning about co-ordinates and translation.  This has fit in well with our Creative Curriculum where we have been reading maps to find different landmarks. 

We have also been learning about the 3 Peaks and have presented our research in little fact files with drawings.  We then compared them to other mountains in the world.
