Spring 2018

 

Our topic for the first half of term is:

 

'Lively London'

During the topic we will explore the big question:

 

'Why is London such a cool place to live?

The Geography focus for this topic is for the children to be able to name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics. The children will also learn how some of these aspects have changed over time.

 

To start the topic, Sparkly Starter activities will include a fun game of rhyming slang, investigating football shirts - which clubs represent a city?, a London landmark treasure hunt and the opportunity to get creative (and possibly a little messy!) through drawing and painting a chosen landmark. With a cross curricular approach, the children will study the work of a famous artist, Edgar Degas, who exhibits at the National Gallery, write promotional leaflets for popular monuments or buildings and use recycled materials to perform their very own version of Stomp.
