Geography

Foundation:

In EYFS, we found out about the Inuits. We made Bannock bread, made collages of their clothes and made houses on stilts.

Year 1

In Year 1, the children have been exploring our school and the local area. They have been looking at the physical and human features of the surrounding areas and created their own visual street. They have also been on a local walk.
 

 

Year 2:

In Year 2, our project has been linked to the continent of Africa. We have focussed on the country of Kenya in particular the town of Molo. We have used our knowledge of this town to compare to our local area of Rotherham. Can you see what we found? We cannot wait to learn more next half term as we carry our project on.

Year 3:

Year 3 have learned all about how volcanoes erupt. In this project, the children learned about the world beneath their feet and found out the answers to such questions. By looking at the layers of the Earth, and learning about tectonic plates, they found out why some areas of the world are more prone to earthquakes and why volcanoes are found in some areas and not others. They also learned that there are different types of rock, which are formed under different conditions. The children explored the impact on human life that natural disasters can have, including the historic volcanic eruption in Pompeii.

Year 4:

In Year 4, the children learned about how mountains and rivers affect people who live near them. The children explored the upper, middle and lower courses of a river and found out about some of the world’s famous rivers. They then used their knowledge to explore how rivers affect why people live there. From this, the children learned about different mountains and then had a particular focus on the Himalayas. They looked at how the different layers might attract different animals and how they are suited to their habitats.

Year 5:

Class 5 have done fieldwork during our rainforest topic, students have done a minibeast hunt and compared their findings to what would be on a rainforest floor (verbally) yet results have been shown through a tally chart. Class 5 have also estimated how many worms are on the school field through measuring 500cm by 500cm on the field and undertaking worm charming.

Year 6:

Year 6 have completed a project about the World War 2 and have looked into Geographical regions that were bombed and how it affected life afterwards.
