My World and Me
Year 1 and 2 investigated the location of the UK in the World using atlases. They also located the major continents and copied their names onto their own map. They found out about the climate of Ecuador and compared it to that of the UK.
Year 1 and 2 enjoyed learning about the farm. They used their knowledge of farms to design and make their own farm maps. They worked in pairs to test each other on directions using the compass directions, north, south, east and west.
An important part of geography is learning about the climate of their locality and comparing it to other places in the world. Year 1 and 2 used thermometers and a weather chart to look at the weather at school over 1 week.
Human and Physical Geography
Year 1 and 2 learnt some important geographical words – human and physical. They learnt the definition of these words and sorted different features into the 2 groups. They then used aerial photographs of their local area to find examples of both.
