In this Geography driver, we will be exploring the Geography curriculum by researching how our food gets from the farm to the shops we buy it from. We will progress our geographical knowledge by finding out which parts of the world different fruit and vegetables come from and use our map reading skills to find these countries on a world map. We will also be applying our knowledge of maps and position and direction to create our own farm maps, after researching common farm buildings.
Through this topic we will also be extending our science knowledge by learning about which food are provided by animals, including pork, beef, eggs, chicken and dairy products. We will consider how seasonal changes affect farming and the production of both crops and meat, and learning about the basic structure of cow and how it produces the milk we buy from the supermarkets. We will also explore the History curriculum by discovering what equipment is used on a farm now, and how these equipment has changed and developed over time.
Through revisiting and progressing our skills and learning, these golden nuggets of knowledge will be embedded in our long term memories!
