Extended Learning

  • Use real or virtual atlases to see how many countries in the world you and your family can name - You should be getting good at this! Who can name the most? who can name the countries in Europe? Who knows the names of the seas and oceans? Keep practising.
  • Watch CBBC Newsround – What else is going on in the world?
  • Look at a world map and tell your family about the places you have learnt about at school – research a place of interest
  • Where is India? Why is India a place of interest for us at the moment? Who are we learning about and why? Tell your family about this
  • Where is Castleton? Look on Google Earth and find out about what the local area is like. How different is it to where we live? How different is it to Stockport or Manchester. Research online what it is like.
  • Investigate how environments can change over time. Use ICT to research the ice caps and what is gradually happening
