In geography this term we will be studying human and physical geography of the United Kingdom and a contrasting European locality. The children will also be learning about the countries participating in the summer’s Formula 1 events and exploring some of the countries that hold the races.
The children will explore the theme through a range of creative tasks including art, music, writing, studies of data and statistics and PSHE events. Enquiry and deductive skills will be developed through children’s own research projects and they will really develop their independent learning skills.
The children will also plan and carry out their fundraising activities to raise money for their end of year leaver’s trip. The children will use the money raised from their stalls to carry out various problem solving activities, and will also look at data handling, linked to both Formula 1 and to geographical statistics.
