Term 2

We started this term with a week dedicated to British Black History. We found out about two influential people: Walter Tull and Maloire Blackman. Look in the Gallery section of our school website for a virtual tour of the work we produced in our Pop Up museum.


Our topic for remainder of term 2 is Geography.

We will be spending two weeks learning about:  Kent, the differences between Great Britain, the British Isles and the United Kingdom. We will also 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 4 weeks learning about Japan and focusing on the following broader geographical questions:

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


Watch this space to find out about our geographical learning!


Debate- we debated the pros and cons of living in a rural, coastal and urban area.
