This is a Geography and Science unit. We will aim to:

  • Locate the world’s countries using maps with a focus on South America, and be aware of key physical and human characteristics.

Alongside our Science and Geography focuses, we will also explore:

  • Shape, Angles and Measurement in Maths
  • Writing for tone in English, based on the book ‘The Neverbelieve’ by Norman Messenger.
