Autumn 2 - World War 2
This is a cross-curricular Literacy topic covering History and Geography.
We will introduce the topic by looking at the historic events that led to the outbreak of the Second World War. We will put events on a timeline that will grow throughout our topic and build understanding of the chronology of war, and the events that led to the Battle of Britain.
We will locate countries using maps to focus on Europe. We will name and locate some counties and cities of the United Kingdom.
We will address historically valid questions about change, cause, similarity, difference and significance.
Autumn 1 - British Isles, regions and cities
This half term we will be looking more closely at where we live - the British Isles. Children will have the opportunity to make links between the representations of the Earth as a globe and as a 2D map, then comparing map representations at a range of scales. We will look at the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the Equator, the northern and southern hemisphere and revise the continents. We will then explore the countries, counties, regions and localities of the British Isles. Children will use maps and atlases to find a range of towns and cities across the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, discussing their position within the country (north, south, east or west) and learning map skills alongside this.
