This term at The Berkeley we have been applying our Geography skills in our topics and have been learning new skills and developing existing ones.
In Key Stage 1 we have been enhancing our knowledge and understanding of the world by using atlases to discover the continents and oceans that make up our planet.
In Key Stage 2 we have consolidated our map skills by identifying similarities and differences between European countries using topographical and political charts. Also we have been developing our understanding of human geography by comparing and contrasting a European and a non European country. we have been researching about population, population density as well as. cultural and ethnic statistics.
we have also tied our geography skills in with our other topic areas, by discussing different religions with our human geography, and looking at historical changes to maps and countries by looking at the maps throughout the ages.
Looking at examples of some of the work you can definitely see how engaged and excited we are about our learning!
