Welcome to Year 4!
Hello and welcome to Year 4.
At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics and called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to either Science, History or Geography.
For this half term, we have a Geography driver and our question to investigate is…
In this unit children will be developing their skills in using maps, globes, atlases and ordnance survey maps to locate countries and major cities as well as describing their features. Children will be finding similarities and differences through studying human and physical features, such as land use. Children will also be using the eight point compass, grid references, symbols and keys to build on their knowledge of Eastern Europe, as well as the wider world.
Below in an outline of what else we will be learning across the curriculum.
Ms Iqbal-Din, Ms Khan, Ms Shah-Aziz, Mr Deans
and Mr Towers
Here are some links to useful websites for the children to use for their own research and enjoyment.
Here is a map of Europe with all the countries labelled. Have you been to any of these countries?
Can you guess what these map symbols mean?
