During this unit we will revise the features of the Earth, including lines of latitude and longitude, the equator and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Children will be introduced to the Arctic and Antarctic Circles. Measuring, distances on a map, grid references, contour lines and map symbols are some of the skills we will revisit.

Under picking the effects of global warming and climate change we will begin to understand how these changes affect biomes. Children learn about trade worldwide and study countries whose manufactured goods, food or natural resources are exported across the globe. We will also learn about natural resource management and the importance of sustainability.

Together we will analyse data and make conclusions from recent road traffic accident figures. Carrying out fieldwork to collect data about the safety of a local road and use our findings to suggest positive changes.
