Autumn 2

Do our choices really matter?


Our question for this half term of 'Do our choices really matter?' will be explored through the Catholic Social Teaching lense of Family and Community across the curriculum.

In EBL we will explore this through being geographers. We will be building upon our prior learning from KS1 about space and seasonal changes, deepening our geography skills. Children will find out more about why rivers are so important to the towns and villages that have developed on their banks. By looking at the features of the local river Stour, in Halesowen, and the natural human ways that rivers change over time, children will be able to name, locate and describe physical key features. In turn, we will carry out research on the Clent Hills, to explore the different ways in which mountains have been formed and how different features of mountain ranges have been shaped over time.

The children will use this knowledge at the end of the unit to analyse a field map and be able to locate and name the physical features of a primary source photograph. Children will be encourage to share their own ideas or experiences throughout this term, continually building upon our skills and knowledge. Therefore, our 'Golden Nuggets' of knowledge will be embedded in our long-term memories!
