TERM 1

 

Our Learning Journey this term is Geography: We will be learning about the country of Nepal.

Firstly, we will be revising our knowledge of Kent, the differences between Great Britain, the British Isles and the United Kingdom.

We will  be improving our geographical skills by: reading maps; using a key; using geographical vocabulary such as urban, rural, coastal, longitude, latitude; asking relevant questions; using compass points for locating places; knowing the difference between human and physical features and using this knowledge to identify features of locations. 

We will spend time learning about Nepal and focusing on the following broader geographical questions:

  • Where is Nepal?
  • What is it like to live there?
  • How can we find out what it is like in Nepal? 

 

Watch this space to find out about our geographical learning journey!
