In this geography driven study, we will be exploring the geography and history curriculum through the key question - 'What makes the earth angry?'
As geographers, we will extend our knowledge of the location globally significant places, using globes and maps to identifying the position and significance of latitude, longitude, Equator, hemispheres, continents and countries.
By exploring 'what Makes the Earth Angry' - we will describe and understand key aspects of physical geography including, mountains, volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. We will extend our knowledge of geographical similarities and differences through the study of a region in a European country and comparing this to a region of the UK.
Our history skills will also be enhanced through gaining an increased knowledge and understanding of how this nation has been shaped by aspects of the history of the wider world, such as the expansion of the Roman empire and invasion of Britain.
Throughout this study, we will continually revisit and refine our skills to ensue that our 'golden nuggets' of knowledge will be embedded into our long term memories!
